I am loving these mild mornings.
Karen spent some time brushing Angel and Maggie.
The girls are spending a lot more time in the pasture now. Too bad we could have snow on Tuesday night. I'm really hoping it passes us by.
This is the first time I've caught Seymour and Sophie together in their porch condo. They are not coming in the house much at all (which is good for a change).
Today the minis were out with Finnegan across the street. Hopefully the grass is not too much for them.
Did a little more work in the gardens and then concentrated on the Studio.
When we bought the farm over 33 years ago, there was an in ground pool and this was the pool house. After 3 new liners and a major problem, we gave up and filled it in about 5 years ago (and I really miss it as I used to jump in with my clothes on after chores). It would have been like starting from scratch and was way out of our price range, so now it's a little orchard.
Anyway, it's a modest little space and Gary has redone the ceiling, walls and windows. No water and no serious heat, tho I have a little electric stove I can plug in to get the chill off.
During class on Tuesday a local writer and his wife/photographer/very prominent artist...are coming up to observe the class and interview all of us. They already photographed the art opening.
When we repainted our living room and library I took down a lot of art work which is now being moved over to the studio.
I made those felt banners for two different projects I participated in. Both involved community art. If you google them, you can find out what I was up to.
For the heck of it, I hung a string hammock over the window. Why not?
Gary made my table out of a 4x8 piece of plywood (ha ha! it used to be our dining room table and was used for my art class before the studio was in gear). I put a piece of plexi glass on it and have all kinds of photos underneath of student work or art related things. The "centerpiece" is made of some weeds I dried out last summer.
It was so nice out, we ate dinner before chores.
Of course my assistants joined me.
Right now, Gary is out in the Studio reading the Sunday paper. There's a very nice (but old) sound system there and it is very peaceful...his evening hangout until it gets cold again.
