This blog is personal- 
As I listen to the domino effect of our economy and the staggering obstacles we face in a global sense, I think of all of the people in this world. When I was young I considered myself to be so important, meaningful- now I look at things and think I am one of many- just a part of this existence. I feel like I can do nothing and anything at the same time- 
When I think of my life I think of paint. My first thoughts are colors- The colors I see are deep blues, violent reds -all brushed with a dark varnish to give them the serious discussion they deserve. I miss my brothers- I kiss my babies and I  delight in the friendship of my husband.
I will paint through these times- I will see the beauty and work like hell to help others see it.
As my daughters used to say- Peace out...

Junk Bonanza

Oh my gosh! I just returned from Junk Bonanza in Medina, MN. I was home at this show! Creativity everywhere! Here are some photos of our trip, booth set up, etc... Our friendly officer Mathew pulled us over for tire issues. Our new friend Steve helped us get the tires ready for the road! Barb Connor from Crosscreek Antiques and I went on the road to do this show together.
Here are some of the booth pictures. I met wonderful people. It was one of my favorite shows ever. But it was hard work. We load everything in ourselves and set it. When it is all done it is worth it. I am ready for the next one! Bring it on...;-)
