Spring Equinox 2016

Sunday was filled with life and love. It was the spring equinox, our 21st wedding anniversary, and a dear friends birthday. We joined art friends for the monthly “popcorn and art” short films showing at The Farm. Not only did we see a great group of friends, but we also visited the sheep and lambs.

At the barn, we checked out the triplets still penned up. One of the triplets almost died, but is doing much better now.

I’ll take this one Harry! It’s like holding a longer legged Hazel in my arms.

The extra treat of the day was getting to see our friend Bobbie W. (center). Carol (right) and I first met her in 2004 on a sketching trip in Brittany France. We had such a grand time together, we all went sketching in Oaxaca Mexico (dia de los muertos) the following year.

To finish the day, my sketchbook friends in Australia and Minnesota have all agreed to a new project involving printmaking! Thank you Anna! I’m so excited to see how this one develops. I’ll share more as it gains momentum.

Happy Spring to all in the Northern Hemisphere, and Happy Autumn to our Southern Hemisphere friends!

    1. We will be choosing individual subjects and everyone will respond with their interpretation. We will leave an appropriate edge so each book can be bound.
      We should really do something together!😄

      1. That’s a lovely idea. I have only recently started collaborating with other artists and that’s on installation, I get a bit inhibited, I don’t know why. Insecurity I suppose.
