I was planning a quiet day in the studio, then my friend, Paula called me. Our husbands had gone off, with Howard and friends, in search of the perfect burger. We were left to fend for ourselves. We decided to check out a very nice art show at the Southminster Presby church in Beaverton, then have a little lunch somewhere. The art show is a nice one, though I think I have become jaded. Lots of "nice" watercolors and what seemed like an inordinate amount of fused glass stuff, but still always good to see what people are doing. I was in the show a number of years ago and sold a couple pieces. I picked up the application for next year. Seems like the show is bigger and better. I am not in the market for big art but I couldn't resist this little bowl. Could you?
Then we had lunch at Cafe Yumm. Paula had not eaten there before It's an Oregon chain. Really good and different. Today was the first time I had been there on a Saturday. Holy smokes it was loud in there. Teenagers. Well, at least they were eating healthy stuff.
I scurried right out to the studio as soon as I got home. I have started work on my next 12 x 12 piece, which are now 12 x 20. The theme is "maps". Here's a little peek. Can you figure out how this relates to maps?
