2015 Wonderful New Year.

Kathleen, I answered your comments, but then decided to post, also... This is the entry to Road to Calif. Special exhibit, " Personal App",  It will be traveling for about 2 years. Will probably forget it is on the road.  This is named, Vivian's Journey..  Lots of hand dyes, applique, photo of my painted tennis shoes, photography, and stamping of words on the roadway.  It was fun, about 36 X 36". Showing this month at Road to Calif Quilt Show, week end of 23rd..

I am hoping some friends get photos of the show, not just my piece, I know what it looks like.
Lets, get together soon, weather now seems like summer,

Hugs, to all vivian

Dear Sisters in Spirit. . .

. . . I have been thinking of you and wondering how you all are and if you ever look at our Sisters blog. Just wanted to say hello and that I think of you often and wonder how the months and years can be going so fast. I'm loving almost every moment at my studio/gallery/classroom--still!--and finding it to be a very productive place for me to be. I'm less interested in teaching classes than I am in painting and creating there, which is an interesting revelation. I'm currently involved in a "30 Paintings in 30 Days" Challenge for the month of January, agonizing a bit regarding taxes (NOT one of my favorite things!), and currently acting as President of the Sanger Downtown Business Association. Surprising, eh? I'm enjoying that role also. Just lost my favorite kitty to a fast car and my  not-so-fast car to a possible dead transmission--today. :( Life does go on. Other than those 2 not so good things, we are well and busy--new swimming pool surfacing and finishing off the garage (as a garage, not a room) are our current projects--more Roy's than mine, with the gallery taking much of my time and energy. Pop in and say hello, if you can--either at the gallery, or HERE, if need be. Allyson's name brings back good memories of our times together, each time I come across her book or her name on one of her "tweets" on my phone or iPad. More soon, I hope--trying to get back to blogging with more regularity!
