It was a fun afternoon at the Alameda County Fair – my daughter played bari sax at the horse race stadium with her middle school band. It was such a wonderful year of music at her middle school – I feel so fortunate that we are part of the music community.
Today was a perfectly beautiful day – not too hot! We headed over to the adult art area and found my painting on display. I don’t know if I will ever get use to this experience of seeing my art in some place other than my studio or home.
I had a fun day celebrating Father’s Day with my hubby and darling daughter. We also ran into a friend unexpectedly. This was not the first time that we’ve run into this friend in random parts of California!
We spent the day in Gold County on an excessively hot day. Either most of the cute antique shops did not have a/c or the a/c they had could not keep up with the 100 degree temps. With that, we still had a lovely day with hubby proclaiming that this was the “best” father’s day.
I want to do some more sewing themed art and was looking for some inspiration. This dress form was calling me…..
I gave the new studio space a “test run” this morning. I found the thermostat (much needed on this hot morning), figured the lighting (switches are in the utility closet, now new art studio space), and somewhat got use to a children’s piano recital happening in the next room over. With all that, I was mostly pleased with the experience. I tripped or bumped into some of my stuff while I work (I move around a good deal). Still need to get the wifi password and find an electrical outlet near my space. I guess it’s all in time.
Today the Alameda County Fair begins! 3 weeks of glorious deep fried goodies, bands from yesteryear, people hawking their wares, and some amazing art on display. Come check out my piece on display this year!
Last night, I attended the artist reception of the LAA Spring Show. I was so impressed with the quality of art on display! There were many beautiful paintings and 3D pieces. The jazz band topped it off! Fun night!
