Last weekend, Dad and I drove to Minneapolis to see my sister, Barbra Bloy.
We wanted to visit while Art-a-Whirl (the largest open studio and gallery tour in the U.S.) was going on. It was great to see what that was about, and check out her studio.
Most of what she works on these days are the beautiful jewelry she creates.
She also does some painting.
Her studio space (which is in an old factory) is perfect for creating and showcasing her art.
My favorite of Barbra’s creations are the mandalas she paints, like the one above.
