Has your summer flown by like mine? We are in the last few weeks of August with still so much to do.
That's not to say I've been lolling around eating bon bons every day. We've eaten our share of lobsters and had a wonderful four day reunion of Delta Zeta (Penn State) sorority sisters here in Maine. There were eight of us and you would never know that many years separated our last visit. (Photo?)
Somehow the weeds keep coming back even though I painstakingly dig them up by their roots.
I am proud to say that I've harvested beaucoup tomatoes, ONE zucchini and NO peppers. Oh well, maybe next year.
Ben, my sweet Bouvier has gotten used to our almost daily jogs...he starts squeaking if I try and leave him behind. No more plein air jogging once back in Virginia, though....too much traffic, heat and humidity, so it's back to the creaky old treadmill.
I have been so very busy making jewelry, especially experimenting with colorations and oxidation of metals. I have obtained the most beautiful turquoise shades on brass and copper using ammonia and am excited to be teaching a class on it this fall.
My full class description and schedule at Stars in Vienna, Virginia is shown below. Some of my new pieces are displayed as well.
PLEASE PUT ON YOUR CALENDAR OUR GREAT FALLS STUDIOS ANNUAL FALL OPEN STUDIO TOUR, OCTOBER 15-16, 2011 (SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, 10am-5pm).
I will be one of 48 artists opening studios for this very popular event. If you would like me to mail you a program, schedule and map, please let me know. Everyone in Great Falls will receive one in their mailbox.
