lost sleep & found friends

I seem to be viewing the week in a rather disorganized manner, but it is probably a result of my still being fuzzy-headed from lack of sleep. At 3:am last Tuesday, the fire alarm in the hotel started ringing and didn't stop. Trudged down 5 flights and out into 100 degree heat/humidity while they tried to figure out how to turn the alarm off and inspected the building. After they finally finished, we trudged back up because a cast of thousands was waiting for the elevators. At 5:am - it happened again. So much for Tuesday night. Tues and Wed. I audited Laura C-W's 'Idea to Image' workshop, which was a huge success with all the participants. Thursday and Friday, she sat through my 'Surface Design Taster' workshop and even played a bit at one point! Here she is, screening with found objects - in this case, leaves.Donna Johnson's alder leaf prints were almost larger than life and would be spectacular on paper, as well. In addition to screening, we did batik. Leslee came all the way from Las Vegas to take the workshop and this piece was so successful I had to take a photo! In fact, I could fill a page with all the beautiful fabrics that came out of this workshop. To be continued...
