The location was at the Hacienda del Sol Resort in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains near Tucson, Arizona.
The "Take It!" Came as I looked through a picture window at one of the great views of the mountains offered at this great setting. The eye catcher was this very innovative use of painted
circles that have a variety of designs to them that offered an art form distraction to a building that was put up perhaps out of necessity, but in reality could well have been a real eye sore.
It certainly played well with my mind, as I was quickly taken in with the various presentations of a circle in this painted metal form.
The After Take: Most that I showed this picture to shared my admiration for the innovation shown. I think most joined me, in having the art be an effective distraction if continuously
exposed to that part of the view. A sort of mental dismissal or forgiving of the plainness of the building along with its mistaken location.
The availability of art as a cover up or distraction, is almost never ending. Most of us have seen entire murals dedicated to this function. I many times have marveled at such murals
with the thought in mind, not only at the quality of the picture drawn, but also at the thought process involved in selecting the scene portrayed.
There is more to come from my visit to this interesting and splendid location.
All my best,
