6" x 6" Party for ROCO

"Batty Bird"
My favorite one 
"#2 Bird"
"Uh Oh"
A bit of fun!
Mary Lowe had a ROCO-ROchester COntemporary Art Center Party at her cozy, mini art gallery home today. What an in-the-zone day of creativity for the friends that showed up. 
Together we made over 20 works to deliver for the very popular in person & online auction in June. 
My 3 pieces are collage on canvas board. Mary had a veritable Michaels craft store of materials to use. Haven't had a great day like this in a while. Good friends, good good, great art!

I have learned: 

1.  Riley, at 3 1/2 months, is laughing. Like a goose. He's a cool cat!

2.  Gas leaks + epic deep freeze = migrating gas = our guys working around the clock to keep people safe. 

3.  Gas leaks + melting snow = water in low pressure main/services = our guys working around the clock to keep people warm. 

4.  1000 Quilt Inspirations by Sandra Sider came in mail today. I see I sent a section of "Ice Crystals".  0596 on page 182. 

5.  My sister, Noni, at 52, started running with Beat Feet in Buffalo and she is loving it!  Pretty darn cool  sister!

Orange Kitty's

This evening was my ArtCGirlzs meeting. It was pure fun after a busy day at work. 
Martha lead us in this transfer exercise. 
We used Sharpie markets to color our designs then in turn used isopropyl alcohol to transfer the image from card stock to fabric. 
I wanted to see what would happen when I sponged a bit of alcohol onto yo transferred image. It left a watercolor type image. Loved!!
This would represent Clifford, Fiona and dead Chester, my three orange kitty's. 
Fun night. Thanks Martha!
Going to AQS Lancaster Friday with Tracu J. Meeting up with Mary Lee and juried quilter, Martha!! Can't wait. 
Snow is melting. Kitchen ceiling is leaking. Uh oh. 
I have learned:
1.  The Voice. Such a good show. Enjoying. 
2.  Mamasans in Rochester. Mmmm. 
3.  Garth killed it in Buffalo this past weekend.
