A (somewhat) daily rambling on the life of a polymer Clay metal clay and Fused Glass artist/teacher/author.

Very soon my blog will move to my website...as soon as it is done that is. This blog will be my Theatrical life of directing The Secret Garden

A small break in the creative life...

This coming weekend I get to run away to South Lake Tahoe, stay in the Horizon and go to see Sugarland in concert. I will be on holiday with two other couples. This should be good.  I have my son working around the house all weekend ... he is slurrying my driveway... so I cannot be around to walk on it anyway.  So, I get to see someone else be creative. I've been listening to their music all week and am jazzed about seeing them in person... albeit probably very far away and they will be very, very, tiny.

Here they are....CLICK.... you won't regret it.  ..... "All I wanna do...."

That said, I got to go to our local theater, last night, and watch 'Anne Frank'. It was wonderful.  Three of my actor buddies from last December's .Beauty and the Beast' were in the show. Now, just how much fun was THAT? They did get me teary eyed... powerful theater experience.

Got some good news from the California State Fair Fine Arts Division... I got an Award of Merit for my entry called Cologne #3.  I will miss the awards ceremony... I will be in Burlingame at a 40th Belly Button party for my nephew - the chef.  This should be great. 

Cologne #3

On Sunday, the 18th, we will be at the Legion of Honor to see the impressionist work on loan from the Musee' D'orsy... we missed that venue when we were in Paris in  2002.
Then in August I will back at my sis's for a family reunion.  Then at the end of August I will have a house sitter here while I join three other couples on the Royal Caribbean cruise to Alaska.... Yeah!!! 

Wish my Mr. Phil was still around to join me. Sigh.

Then on to Chicago for a Masters Retreat with Art Clay World.  In the mean time I need to get my presentation, workshop syllabus and PowerPoint presentation for July 2011 Metal Clay World Conference outside Chicago. They want to get the website ready by the end of next week.

Whew!  That's all folks for now.  I think.
