Saturday evening, the Water Grill provided the perfect ambience to reunite with dear friends Sue Scheewe, Stan Brown, Camille and Kimberly. We lingered over delectable food and delightful conversation - Stan and Mike told stories that left everyone's cheeks aching from laughter. Alas, the night was over too soon. Synchronicities were in play - Sunday morning I turned on PBS to find Sue painting away on her watercolor show. What an icon!
I toured Plaid's booth with engaging designer Angela Anderson. New products and fresh ideas abounded. I met Angela in 2005, when I first picked up a paintbrush. She's been a source of inspiration as I've watched her talent and career blossom.
Cupcakes, steampunkery and glitter were the order of the day. Picked up Lisa Kettell's amazing Altered Art Circus, the latest by Creative Tonic's Christi Friesen and Cyththia Thornton's Enchanted Adornments. Favorite artists Pam Carriker, Rita Rae, Traci Bautista were also in attendance.
I left the show inspired and seeped in artistic possibilities. I hope the pics below capture some of that for you.
