Showing Her Stuff!



You remember my friend and talented artist Kate Merritt Davis. Actually she started out as one of my 100 Strangers but moved into the friends category shortly after that. Yesterday I caught her at the Bottle Tree just after she hung her work for an upcoming exhibit. My Birmingham readers can meet Kate at the reception there on Friday, March 5 th from 6:00-8:00.

The Bottle Tree may ring a bell from posts here and here and here. It has the most fabulous shadows late in the afternoon and Kate and I both liked this photo because of the dappled light. The bottom photo I snapped as I left. This funky bar/cafe abounds with bottle trees. I liked the sunset behind this one.

What a bubbly person. Love the reflections on her and on work. Looking at her dress and the painting, I think she likes turquoise. Goodness, AND her eyes! I love turquoise too!

Adore the bottle tree. Beautiful shot, Virginia.

What fun .. so when the leaves sprout do the bottles get hidden in the foliage? Do birds ever land on the bottles? So many silly questions.

You must be one of the best-known people in B'ham. I think you should run for something.

OMG she looks like my sister when she was about 14. Can I help provide the necessary consumption for the next bottle tree?
