Holy Smokers.....the weekends are flying by like a whirlwind! Last weekend was so crammed, I can't believe we made it through! We started off the weekend with the Fish Show here in Anacortes. I could not believe how many people were out and about for First Friday Art Walk, YAY! Swarms of people everywhere! So amazing to see people supporting local art! I paid Ally to be my date for the night..(which she did for 5 minutes and then ended up ditching me for friends)...here we are loving my mermaid painting, ha! ha!
After checking out the Fish Show, I did hit several studio's to check out some other local artists. KP Studio's had the high school student show for spring. My daughter's friend Breanna Blakely made this amazing sculpture! I told Ally to make sure to stay friends with her so we can have her autograph things when she is famous! Go Breanna!!! :)
On Saturday, I spent most of the day at the market by myself. :( This is pretty unusual because Dan is almost always with me. He was suffering from "Pain in the Ass" syndrome. Literally! He fell on his tailbone a few weeks ago at Absolute Air, a trampoline park in Arlington. He was trying to be all "hip and cool" and showed the kids how to do a double back flip jumpy thing, but things went horribly awry. Instead of landing on his feet....he landed...well.....on his butt with his legs in the air............ON THE METAL BAR that had maybe a centimeter of padding!!!! AGH!!!! He bruised his Coccyx and is having a REALLY HARD TIME (snicker, snicker). Instead of sharing a picture of his butt, I will spare you and provide this photo of my booth at the market... (you owe me)
After the market, I dropped off Ally at the Catapult Fest, a music concert at the Port Warehouse. I was suppose to go and watch her friend Pearl Tottenham open for the show but I ended up giving up my tickets to my daughter's friends. (that is whole other story, but I can tell you I got the better end of the bargain.) Pearl and Ally have been friends for a long time. I can remember when Pearl would be belting out of tune songs in the car in grade school! So amazing that she was able to preform at the concert, and pretty bummed that I missed it! Here is a flyer that I found in town:
Sunday was cleaning out the garage day, which was much needed! We now can park in there AND open our car doors! YAY US!
I did get a few hours of down time and was able to get some art journaling in...here are couple of pages:
P.s. My brother Clayton really did graduate Valdictorian....and I hate him for being such a SMARTYPANTS!!!!!! No fair!!!! How come I have to the be the flighty air-head artist one???
Hope you guys all had a great weekend too! We are gearing up for another crazy weekend ahead....only this time??? Seattle, visit with out-of-state relatives, a market and TWO BIRTHDAYS!!!! AGH!!!! Stay tuned, I am slowing going out of my mind, so the next blog post should be interesting!!! :)
