Sunday-Monday in the East Bay

Day off on Sunday to catch my breath between classes.  What a lovely idea!  Time to catch up with friends.  

Carol Larson and I got together for a lunch and gabfest, which was great.  We went to brunch at the elegant restaurant, Gather.  The bar was so beautiful that I couldn't resist taking this photo.  
Afterwards, we went our separate ways: Carol to an art opening, and I back to the house to rest up for an evening out with my childhood friend, Michael.
 This morning (Monday) , this is the scene from my host's window. If you look really hard you can see the Golden Gate Bridge -- but it's hard to see how red it looked.  Gorgeous!
Then it was back to class -- this time, a day of using those hard-to-use fabrics that have been sitting around because you couldn't figure out how to use them.  For the students who printed on Saturday, it as a chance to cut into their masterpieces and force themselves to be creative with them.

Remember the orange print from yesterday's post?  Here it is, in process.
There were lots of others in process, too - and I can't wait to see the pictures of the finished pieces.
My students did Show and Tell  with their in-progress pieces after I finished my talk.  And at the end of the evening, the requisite celebrity shot with Roberta Horton & Mary Mashuta. What fun!
Meantime, I'm flying home tomorrow and look forward to coming back here in the (relatively) near future.

yes, I am so proud of my students -- all of whom worked with the same techniques and got different results.
