Well, where have I been??? I can tell you I have not been in the studio very much but I have had a few moments. In late June my son's girlfriend got a great job in Oregon, in a little town 3 hours south of Portland. Not the bright lights of that coolest city Portland, but it is in Oregon and a career move. So a big move was on the horizon. Next they decided to get married before the move, so wedding planning crowded the horizon as well. In the end we had a lovely, Renaissance-Fair-type wedding - all vegan just as they wanted - and eventually shipped two young people who had yet to live far from family across the country to the next stage of their life.
The brides mum is a talented theater costumer and she made the bride's fantasy wedding gown and the groom's magical garments. She also provide various bits and pieces of costume for the groomsmen as well.
I got in the act a bit with an art-shoe centerpiece for the head table.

Sometimes birthdays are a godsend. I like to make mini-collages for cards and it gets me back to working images once again.
