Summertime!



So, it seems that my last post was on the first day of Spring and I'm wondering how a whole season could have gone by so quickly. Life is zipping along at the speed of light. Now it's a time for long days, beach jaunts, and projects galore.

I enjoyed a painting workshop at the studios of Lisa Kaus yesterday. Lisa has a lovely home and garden, and a wonderfully appointed downstairs studio full of artwork, as well as an area for a group of 11 or so students to spread out and create. It was Father's Day, something I didn't realize when signing up for the class so we did our family thing on Saturday morning, which worked out better for everyone. I didn't feel too guilty yesterday as hubby was able to spend the whole day with a new HD television all to himself. A well-deserved day of doing absolutely nothing in particular. Anyway, I've posted a couple of pics of the painting I did in workshop. It was fun to do something loose and whimsical.

I'll be heading over to Reed College in Portland on Wednesday for Artfiberfest! My personal vacation time; 3 days of fiber-related workshops and fellowship. This will be my third time at AFF and it's the first year it's being held in Portland. I'll come home with a load of inspiration and new projects. Promise to share some of that when I return.
