Speaking of blue...

...look at this view of my street from my sitting room window! It is so bright out there, I could hardly look, and the sky is a pure, bright blue. I love the intense shadows from the trees on the light dusting of snow we got overnight.

And of course, Possum is at his perch in front of the window and radiator, soaking up as much warmth as he can, and saying loudly with his scornful look, "Get yourself and that camera out of MY space!"

Today I am printing labels for the Barnes & Noble exhibit, which I will hang Thursday evening. Here is my 'sign' which I've printed at 8x10", and will laminate on foamcore to hang with the work.

...AND, in our late breaking local news: the TV station that burned down had CBS and FOX up and running (though a bit 'ghost-y') for last night's State of the Union address, so maybe I can watch American Idol tonight! Woo-hoo! Turns out that they had kept the transmitter in an old bomb shelter, so it mostly survived the fire. HA! Guess those shelters are good for something after all!

And, speaking about State of the Union address and bomb shelters, I'd just like to remind everyone of how important the upcoming elections will be for our country. A change for the good is needed on many fronts, so think, pray, be informed, and VOTE, people!!

Hi, I couldn't agree with you more, especially the praying part! Love your site, your work. It is ALL truely amazing! YOU are very talented and an inspiration! I want so desperately to start tapestry weaving. I love to paint, and knit, and just create. I actually have a 4-harness floor loom and I have been researching tapestry looms. I find it so overwhelming as to what is best for oneself. I realize I should start small, though my painting for the last 20 some years has been murals and faux finishes in homes and businesses, I'm afraid I tend to think large, very large! ha ha....any thoughts...thank you so much! Cynthia

Cats just don't get the blues, do they? That expression makes me think rather of Holly Golightly's 'mean reds'...

Hope it all goes well with the exhibitions!

thank you for cheering me up! I feel much better looking at all your luscious blue photos and seeing the work you've done for your "Cups and..." show. It's going to be a great exhibit and so uplifting in the dead of winter!
