Up and coming artist

This is our grandson Ben , I might be seeing something that others don't see but I see an artist in the making.

First here is Ben with a piece of fence post that he found behind the garage. And I thought "That's a boy for you" Lugging logs around.

But then later I here him call for his Mom and me to come see the "Sculpture"( His word) that he was making. He had put the fence post up on end and found a quartz rock, covered it with a dry leaf and as I watched he said that it needed some "color", so he pulled up some grass and sprinkled it on top.

Then he was off looking for a flower for some more color.

Here is Ben with his first work of art.

Quilt Out Loud Garden Party

This winter I had been mulling around in my mind the idea of having a Garden Party and inviting all my artists friends.  I called it "Celebrating Women And Their Art"  So I picked the date of June 26 and starting planing .  This was going to be a wonderful party, friends, good food, some drinks and everyone brought one piece of art for show and tell. My Mother was the feactured artist.  My friend Bunny Goode  brought this to the attention of the wonderful people of  "Quilt Out Loud" and before we knew it Jodie Davis and Mark Lipinski were coming to join the fun. My daugther  Rebecca toke  some pictures in between getting the food and drinks out . I should have been taking pictures also but there was so much going on that I was over whelmed . The pictures could have been better but I am happy that we have what we have. Enjoy!!

Meeting Jodie and Mark

I am showing Mark the quilt that I had started putting together out of silk fabric that I had collected. The finished piece is the little viking girl waiting for the ships to come to shore.

 Here my Mom and Mark are having a few laughs.

Mark and the girls talking about all the wonderful art that they had brought  for show and tell. You can see that they were having a good time.

Then a little time to relax around the table.

Here is just a few of the wonderful art from that day.
