Artfest mini post

My fourth year! Oh how I love Artfest. The best camp experience every year.

Playing with the camera on the ferry ride over to Kingston. I could ride a ferry all day long.

On the Fort Worden grounds, toward the water and Dorm 225. My resting place for five days.

Jesse Reno, beginning the process of completely changing a painting that was finished. What a great spirit he has. Take a class from him if you can, I recommend more than one day, I just started "getting" it about an hour before class was over...gonna have to finish cleaning up the studio post Artfest to break out the easel and paint, paint, paint!

Nearly complete. Now I understand, I've gotta add more random bits of paint and highlight them.

Ta da! I love it!

301 posts! who knew?

...they certainly have been few and far between since little man joined us. I'm trying to increase the blogging time around here...and increase our walks to the lake, hikes in the library woods, splashing in the fountains, and keeping track of his spoken words.

And in the evenings, during naps and in the wee hours of the morning I'm working on these things
