This past week, I met with peers at Saluda Shoals Park to discuss "Through the Eyes of Art" planned for Sunday Oct. 7, 2007. We saw the areas where artists would be performing, installing, reading, singing, painting and sculpting. It was an interesting walk in the woods with fellow artists, arts administrators, park employees, and writers. It was mentioned that they would love to have artists use materials found in the park. I saved a few pieces of bark to dry out. The bark is in my house and Toffee has her own ideas of how to use the bark. Here is a new picture of her. She is now 3 1/2 months old and weighed in at 3.8 pounds.
That evening; I went to Thee Matriarch & met fellow blogger Harriett Hilton . She was such a joy to meet. I had been reading her blog at Artistic Musings and really enjoying it; when she invited me to her show. After meeting; she interviewed me for her blog and it is listed there. So check out my interview at Artistic Musings. It was an honor to meet the owner of Thee Matriarch, Rachelle Jamerson former Entrepreneur of the Year. She is so young looking; it's hard to believe she will soon be celebrating her 15th year in business. Congratulations!****
