A Beautiful Summer Week-end

We are having a lazy last week-end before the busy fall season of meetings and events start up. Yesterday, we went to Art in the Pearl, the annual festival in downtown Portland. I collected business cards from artists who live in or near Portland so that I can invite them to apply for Artists Among Us.

I took a few photos. This chair was so lovely. It had a footstool with it. The other furniture made by this artist, Victor DiNovi, was exquisite.

This glass artist, Morgan Madison, does some beautiful work. I loved every thing in his booth.

Here is my friend Teresa Rusch, in her both. She dye paints wool yarn and weaves gorgeous scarves and shawls.

I saw these collages and was struck by how similar the elements are to those used by fellow twelve, Deborah Boschart. The artist is Marcy Baker.

We sat down to have a cold drink and saw the top of The Henry, a building with cool condominiums. Mr C said he would like to live in the pent house condo at the top! It is a little out or our price range.

I also liked the canopy of leaves above us.

Here is today’s red-orange 3 x 3.

I also cut some batting and backs for the 3 x 3’s.

Tomorrow, we will have a BBQ with the family. M and M go back to school on Wednesday. I have a full schedule of activities coming up this month. Where did summer go?

    Hello You!
    Seriously, where did the summer go??? The kids here went back to school THREE WEEKS AGO! We wonder about the sense of that: added power costs for the ac with school in session….and all of the kids playing sports in the summer heat and humidity!
    I’m with Steve – I’d like that penthouse too! Then there’d be enough room for a studio, – plus some awesome vies!
    Love your photos from the Pearl.
    Enjoy your family day!
