My Friend Kathleen
Yesterday, I had the pleasure to attend a day retreat at my friend and artist Kathleen's home in Sanger. About 20 artists gathered there to "play". Some doing their own art, others experimenting with new mediums. Kathleen's home is a picture at every corner. She gave me permission to take some photos.
Her sleeping cat was present to greet us.. I forgot to take a photo of her darling dog... He is smaller than the cat. And yes, I did not take photos of the artists yesterday,, maybe today.
And these are the cats that don't meow or anything else, just look happy. Many were also on the table. I had a wonderful day, taking photographs and painting. More to come, I am driving down again today.. Play week-end
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
