My other online class

This is an exercise from my other online class: The art and business of Surface Pattern Design with Rachael Taylor from the UK. She is an amazing teacher and artist. This project was for a fresh Spring wrapping paper pattern using the Pantone color of the Year; Tangerine Tango.

I want this skirt

I might have to relearn how to crochet so that I can make me a bohemian skirt like this one! I would make the top part a bit longer though...if you know what I mean. From didiwebshop.nl

The mothership!

We went to visit our stuff at the storage facility in Sumner. I grabbed some of my art supplies and we said goodby again...

Always a blast with our Seattle friends Renée, Eric and Sophie. And what a lovely bust Renée has...

Our new home for the next 3 months

We rented this cute little cottage in Port Townsend with an artist studio in the back. It's right in town, we can walk everywhere from here. Local bakery, gourmet grocery store, movie theater, boutiques and restaurants. Life is good!

Gorgeous day in PT

We love it here! And the weather is beautiful.

Movie at the Rose theater in Port Townsend

Originally built as a vaudeville house in 1907, the Rose theater ushered in silent films, talking pictures and technicolor. What better venue to watch the movie "The Artist" last night!

We just crossed over to Washington state (as the little green sign on the bridge tells us.)

Leaving the Bay Area

Saying goodbye to our friends Megan and Terence, we left the house of our charming hostess Mary in Forest Knolls. I have to admit, we look pretty trashy with the car filled up with junk up to the ceiling!
