Stolen Art

 I had a wonderful girls art and hiking weekend at my friend Marianne's place about an hour and 1/2 northeast from town. Though it was only about 36 degrees outside we all had our coats off after a few minutes of hiking, the sun was so intense!

Unfortunetly there should be three dogs with us but one stayed in the car as she started limping and couldn't put weight on one leg. It later turned out that she had broken a chunk of bone on her toe and is now homebound for 6 weeks!

We didn't take snowshoes but started to post hole after the snowmobile tracks ran out, so we turned around and went back to our art...

the moral here is don't knit and drink

MK and Nancy working on their prints for the "Leftover" exchange
Etching in Styrofoam take out containers

printing on gelatin

The kitchen was taken over with prints...

The dining table was taken over with all kinds of projects...

A collage I call "10"

Here's were the "stealing" comes in. I ran out of substrates for my projects and raided the wood box outside the house. (with permission of course) but then discussion ensued with is what I do "found art" or "stolen art" see previous blog post about raiding a grand child's toy box while left to my own devices!

"C" is for Cherry Chocolate Cake
