Ok, I know where April went - but that's the problem - it's gone! That's ok I guess, I'll not make any promises though about posting more often, seems when I do I jinx myself... So, instead I'll post some photos from the Art Sale we had April 24th. If you'd like to see any of these photos larger, right click on the photo and you can choose to open the image in a new tab or window.
Here we are, packing to go - moving things into bins to go on the roof of my friend's car.
This field of mustard was growing just south of Salem - my driver kindly stayed in the right lane of the freeway so I could capture some shots without traffic blocking my view! She too loves to capture fleeting moments through the window of a moving vehicle. I can see turning this into painting sometime soon!
Here is where we had the art sale - my friend's Parents generously donated the use of their house, clearing out rooms to showcase the artwork.
These next few photos show how my friend set up a bedroom to display her pieces. She's an amazing decorator - her ability to transform rooms, decor & people is magical!
My daughter set up an area to do henna for the afternoon.
Here she's applying henna to my right wrist. It was quite the challenge to take a photo with my left hand, not moving my right at all! Try it sometime - it's amazingly difficult, so I was happily surprised to see these pics came out pretty well!
This composition of fresh fruit just sparkled with intense color - truly a straight-out-of-camera image!
Along with artwork and henna, we enjoyed the lovely guitar & voice of Hans Barklis. As you can see, the fish behind him were also entranced!
If you missed this Art Sale event, we're sorry you couldn't make it, but we're really hoping to have another one. If you'd like to be put on our email list to be notified of future events, please leave a comment, and we'll make sure you're sent an invitation to our next one!
P.S. - a shot of my wrist - 2 weeks after the henna was applied - & one of the 2 puppies my brother's family recently adopted!
