Ron and I are busy getting ready for our Holiday Sale in Portland on Saturday and Sunday November 6th and 7th. The hours are 10:00am-4:00pm at 210 NE Fargo (if going north on MLK turn left on Fargo…when you see the Popeye’s Chicken). We have lots of great items for gifts and for indulging yourself. Plus we’ll have some sweets, wine and cider for your enjoyment. I wish I could put on a show, but I know I’ll be much too busy writing up sales! We (as artists) really need your support this year. Times are tough…BUT we have been lucky enough to survive this “recession” because of our loyal customers and are confident that our callings as artists are the right and true path for us now and in the future. We are obsessed with our work and will always keep making art. The quality of our work reflects years of experience and growth. Our Holiday sale is a blast! See you there.

Saturday and Sunday November 20th and 21st I’ll be doing another class in “Figure Drawing and Painting” at The Dalles Art Center. We’ll be working on drawing the figure, painting the figure and developing your own style of expression. The class is $40 per day. (509-365-5119 or firstname.lastname@example.org )
I have the Mexico class dates! The dates are April 13th-19th 2011. That is a Wednesday to Wednesday. (This will save us on airfare.) I’m very excited about the class and will be sending out flyers soon. Nancy Lennie and I have been cooking up all sorts of fun experiences. I can’t wait for the sunshine, magic and creativity. If you are interested please send me your names and addresses or e-mails to get specifics and have me send you a flyer. (509-365-5119 or email@example.com)
Here’s a plug for The Attic Gallery. I have lots of work there just waiting to be put under someone’s tree. Go and check it out or click to www.atticgallery.com . Thanks Diana, Maria and Becky for being such great support to me. Your gallery is the best in Portland!
Mondo should have won on Project Runway! He is a genius.
My birthday was and still is a huge success! So many cards, so many presents and so many good wishes. I’m so fortunate to have the friends that I do. Maureen (my pen-pal of over 50 years) called me from Liverpool England! What a treat. Also my family was great. Ron, Hans and Amy never forget and I love them for that. My friend Bill (even though just out of surgery) sent a special “variety” package that was Halloweenish and Birthdayish. Thank you, Bill. I look forward to sharing gifts with Rick Harvey when we see each other at my sale. He and I were born one day apart! I still look at all my cards each day! No, I don’t feel old, just energized.

The deer are playing tag in my front yard. How lucky can one person get?
