I guess the most popular photo is of the Turkey whole. But I carved it before I thought of the photo op.. and even clean plates at this time.. Hope everyone is where they wish to be on this the beginning of the Season of family and friends.. Gratitude is what we need to think of at a time when the news is a bit too scary to even contemplate.. We must look closer at hand, and be thankful for each day, and the family and friendships that we share with each other.. We are rich, when we look at it from that perspective. I hope each of you are with the person you care about and those that are not enjoy wonderful memories and love.
Come join the fun at the Water Source of Life Exhibition of wonderful Juried art showing in Oakhurst.. You will be surprised by the variety of art represented.. Some has been sent from the far sides of the U.S.A. in all directions. Reception will feature many of the artists, so if you have a question about technique or inspiration they will probably be there to chat with you. Munchies and music, enjoy an evening of fun and laughter.
When we built our house, we wanted some trees that showed color in the Fall. This Liquid Amber is one that we planted when we first settled here.. I have several others, but this made the best photo. The rock is from the time they dynamited the area for the house.. This is only one of many rocks. Love clear skies and cool days...
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters.
