It 's always fun to get a nice surprise in the mail. The latest issue of Haute Handbags was waiting for me in the mailbox yesterday. In the Gallery section there was a photo of my felted wool tote that I sent in months ago.
Somehow I managed to finish up a box for the "Outside the Box" show this morning and get it down to the Faulkner Gallery just in time. The silent art auction will benefit "Health Care for All-Education Fund". On October 8 there will be an evening of music, refreshments, and local celebrities at the Cabrillo Pavillion Arts Center, 1118 East Cabrillo Blvd. 7 to 9 pm along with the auction. Music by John Douglas and Friends. Hope to see you there!
That's Mary Chubb holding my box so I could take a quick photo. She had just turned in her box. I remembered taking a collage class with Joan Gunther and Mary 19 years ago!
The Rug Hooking class at the Art Clinic on Friday went really well. Seven lovely women showed up and got right to work hooking their various projects. Loved teaching at the Art Clinic-only 30 minutes from my home and a fun environment with lots of great music and art on the walls.
Somehow I forgot to take any pictures! I hope I get to see some of the completed pieces.
So today after I dropped off my box I went to Anthropologie and bought 2 plates that I've been wanting and then mailed off some Blue fish clothing I sold on Ebay and since we have been having another heat wave here I headed on down to Goleta Beach for a walk and a swim. I found a parking spot right on the end and took this photo of a local painter working on an oil painting of the cliffs and ocean. I took the photo right through my car's front window!
I spent about an hour in the water with my boogie board and caught a few waves. The water is the warmest its been all summer. I may just have to go back in tomorrow after our Hook-in at Maren's.
