Just got back from portland. We had to go visit Reed College as we are moving our Artfiberfest retreat there (june 24-28, 2009) and had to check it out first. It was amazing and we can't wait till next june. Also, Theo Ellsworth was having another show at his gallery (he co-owns it with a group of artists), so we got to see the opening night of it. He's got some great pieces in it and a few extra copies of his book also. If you want to check it out, google the Pony Club in portland. We spent the rest of the weekend getting ready for a metal journal making workshop we are having in our studio this weekend. OH...and I set up my easel and paints in the corner of my living room! Yes, I know...I have a giant studio and I put it in my living room. But it is making me want to paint. A little here, a little there...it's fun. Sometimes I wake up and paint for 20 minutes in my jammies before hopping in the shower. I'll try to take some pics of the corner soon.
