Riding the Artfest Wave

What a wonderful, blissful few days of creative fun with friends.  And, let me start by thanking those responsible for making it all happen – Teesha, Tracy and all the others who worked behind the scenes.  What  a huge undertaking to bring together an event of this size and scope.  And also a big thank you to everyone who shared such enthusiasm for my little “kissing fishes”.  Thanks to my closest buddies (now dubbed the “Groupers”), I seem to have earned a new moniker as “The Fish Lady” – sheesh!  Anyway, the warm reception was much appreciated.
I didn’t manage to get back for the show and tell night on Friday as we were too absorbed in finally exploring the lovely town of Port Townsend and enjoying a fabulous dinner.  So, here’s a little show and tell of a couple of items I started in the classes I attended.  On Thursday I was in Sunny Carvalho’s Plywood People class.  Really an impressive surprise.  Her paintings are so much more wonderful in person – they have such depth to them.  Mine still needs some finishing touches, but this is where I got her to before I left:

On Friday I was in Linda and Opie O’Brien’s class, “Set in Stone.  This one was such fun to mess with metals, patinas, cold connections, and concrete.  I managed to get a couple of pendants complete and ready for chains which I will finish at home in my studio.

Now….what to start on first now that I’m back home and my head is swimming with ideas and creative energy??!!

    Hi Cheryl, from a groopie! I just loved your kissy fish and even drew it in my journal (check it out on my blog!). It makes me happy to see those big happy fish lips! It was my first time at AF and a great one.

    Thanks, Jill. I’d love to see your blog, but it doesn’t show up in your profile for some reason. Can you write out the link for me?
    Thank you, Clarissa. I think that one is my favorite as well.
