What a great week (or was it 2) - Join me for Bend's Art Hop, April 1, 2011 (NO FOOLING)

Well I have had a busy week!  First, I was at an art retreat in the Columbia River Gorge - Menucha.  Complete with bunk rooms, home cooking and art instruction from 9 a.m. until bedtime.  Everything was fabulous!  The (way too much) food, the art teachers and especially my roomies, Sydney and Bernice from Portland, Oregon were all more than I had ever expected.  I loved getting to know my roomies!  The fist night I was a bit worried when I came into my room and they were already snuggled up in their beds, lights off.  The next night they did stay up a little later and we chatted into the night comparing art journaling ideas. 

Then I came home to a flurry of activity getting ready to the the Red Chair Gallery's Featured Artist for the month of April.  I was a tad stressed that everything (paintings and jewelry) had to be in by Sunday, March 27th.  But then, you know, when I dropped everything off and helped organized and went home on Sunday, I felt a huge relief and have had a great week not worrying about my show.
