Sittin on the dock of the Bay...

I just returned this week from a great birthday week in TX with my family. My mom took me and my 3 sisters to Rockport for some much needed girls time. Lots of time to visit art galleries and get inspiration. Rockport is #48 in the Book " The 100 Best Small Art Towns in America"

Mom bought us each a pair of new flip flops.

Marianne working on her photo transfers.

While I was in Texas I received an invitation to studio em for our Tuesday night art making. Since I was back of course I went. Good friends, good art,  good wine...what much else could you ask for. :)

 Echo kept me company all night, sitting under my chair.

 I worked on some frames I bought at the Catholic Rummage Sale I went to with my Mom (this was just prior to her winning $25 at Bingo!) I covered them in corks and some other finds.

One of the days I spent in TX was on a wine tour of the Hill Country. At one of the wineries they had a barrel of corks that said "free." Needless to say I threw a handful into my purse. Now to create some collages for the frames.

One of Marianne's beautiful photo transfers. I went by the Art Source Gallery and her art looked really good in it's new display! Stop by on First Thursday (tomorrow) to my friend Zella's metal art as the featured show and then come by the Boise Art Museum were I will be demonstrating my assemblage techniques from 5-8 pm.

I am loving those frames. I have a big bag of wine corks--and I want to thank you for the inspiration!!
