so, today is lots of hustle and bustle...getting the creativity center set up for 60 people to eat, getting some of my work up on the wall, etc. So here are three pictures of my work up on the wall and I have three more on the design walls. It is so wonderful to be able to see these on large walls they way they should, and from a distance. I feel good, da, da, da,da,da, like I knew I would!
Another piece on the wall
And this piece I finished this morning. I also did some foiling on it and am really happy about it.
Here is a detail with the foiling...it is a copper color, not gold.
Above you see Vicki dancing to the tunes of the 60's...you can tell everyone is working hard...or at least Pam who is bringing in more chairs...60 total! Pam is in charge of the food, the seating, the beds, the bedding and all that stuff.
The skies are not clear this afternoon. Things have started to dry out so we are hoping the clouds just keep on moving by.
This is one of the beautiful oak trees on the property. Virginia was out on her hike today and heard hawks screaming...she finally was able to see them and watched them mating...but she wasn't sure if they were successful of not! She wasn't close enough!
Karey took the entire crew out to dinner at Las Fuentes for Mexican food...we seem to be hanging out there. I passed the camera around for shots of the meals. The first one is Nancy's and it is tipped so she could get the margarita into the shot!
My taco salad
Marvin's something or other that had lots of food!
Quesadillas with an enchilada
A tamale with something else that sure looks good...it was down at the other end of the table.
A taco con queso
Three tacos on flour tortillas
Karey's dinner of enchiladas, half of which came home with her.
and now for the people...left to right: Marvin, Karey, Virginia, Pam, Teresa
and in the back on the right which you can't see is Ann Flaherty, Vicki, Amanda, and Nancy
Here is Virginia, Pam and Teresa, all holding the same pose which hides the double chins. Check
out the size of those margaritas!
And here is Ann along with Vicki and Amanda
And then, at the end of the table was Nancy, me, Marvin and Karey.
We had a grand time and laughed a lot. Found out there is a happy hour tomorrow and that Ann will be over around 10:30 and the fun starts. Wow!
Glad I drank half of my Margarita..I will have no trouble going to sleep tonight.
Needless to say, Virginia only got fusing done and rearranging her studio for the open studio.
I spent time signing my little pieces and cleaning up my space some more and finishing the piece from last night.
Got to get to sleep...it will be a full day tomorrow from around 10 am to after 8pm. But it will be fun with lots of great people to meet for the first time, people to see again, and lots of pictures to take!
See y'all tomorrow!
