The other day I was jauntily motoring around the city looking for the place that I had purchased my motorbike so that I could get my free oil change. Not completely sure where it was, I was taking a few turns here and there looking for familiar signs. I love doing this to be honest. I like to explore. It is so much fun.
Well I turned down a street that had an enticing bend in the road ahead and, although I knew it was the wrong way, I just couldn’t resist the bend. And I was fully rewarded for my risk taking (ok, there was no risk what-so-ever, but doesn’t it sound more exciting?).
As I turned the bend I came upon the craziest building I had seen in Mandalay.
The cement sculptures on the rooftop and entryway were zany and fun, very liberal in there expression and full of, at least my interpretation, happiness and zeal. I had to stop and check this place out.
To my great pleasure I learned that it is an art studio, Dreamland Art Studio, that offers classes in music and many forms of painting and drawing.
I walked in and found a gal that speaks great English and said, although they had just finished a semester of classes, that I could take a look around and share with you all some of the art on the walls.
I just love the unique perspectives, colors, mediums… I’m definitely going to look into taking classes in September when they open up again.
It is so fun to explore. I love discovering hidden treasures.
Have a creative week!

That’s a really cool sculpture and definitely a distinctive style. It definitely caught my eye.
Me too – love it!
Gretchen: You seem so much happier this week. The art looked like sand sculptures. Right from the Oregon coast. Joan
Its fun to discover great places. I hope your summer is going well and you and Tom are out having some fun.
