I have been painting like a fiend the past couple of weeks and have finished paintings for both exhibitions coming up and then some that I will put on etsy later this summer.
I have been reading guidebooks, reviewing maps, and making notes about places to go when I am on vacation this summer - I will be traveling to Seattle, Vancouver, and Portland with a few other stops in and around northern Oregon and Washington. I can hardly wait!!!!!!
We had dinner last night at a great restaurant at the beach - the Polo Grill. I had trout while DH had flounder, and I have to say that the complimentary mango sorbet might be the best that I have ever tasted!
I have cast on a new knitted piece - it will be a tabard done in a color scheme inspired by the Alma-Tadema painting of The Favorite Poet - lots of creams, taupes, tans, ivories, and soft pinks.
I won a couple of things - a GC from Jenni Bowlin for a Sunday challenge (the "Counting my Blessings" layout) and some badly needed adhesives from Jamie Dougherty's blog - Yay!!!!! It's amazing how you start running out of supplies when you don't buy anything - funny how that happens!
Hope all is well with you and thanks for reading,
