Good Morning Everyone!

I have just gotten back from a short trip to Minneapolis where I (of course) bought some art glass and visited with friends. After speaking with my good friend Abigail, we decided I'll have a show at her house, maybe in late September.

I also went to a wonderful gallery with my dear friend Bonnie. This gallery was small but so beautiful. It made me happy to actually see and touch the creativity that all of these artists share.

good morning! It is June and the air smells wonderful each morning as I walk my two pooches. Yesterday we ran into a neighbor of ours out walking her two dogs. In the fog it was difficult to make out who it was.

the rain and the fog are getting to me. Today I THINK the sun is going to shine. I'd love it if it did. At least for right now I am able to see the sun rise which is a change from the last week when I couldn't!

I grouted a Mirror yesterday. I had an old oval one handled silver platter that had been my Grandmother's. It had a whole series of patterns etched with in this fairly large platter. I placed the mirror in the middle and covered the remaining flat surface with vines, flowers and hearts. Grouted in a dark charcoal, I think it looks spectacular!

Here is an unfinished portrait of this Mirror.
