Karen, Gerrie and I met last night in South San Francisco for dinner! Gerrie and Karen were attending the SDA/SAQA conference, and even though I wasn't, I took the opportunity to drive down and get a few hours with them. They'd spent the day touring artist studios and they were glowing with excitement and inspiration. So we headed out to a local italian restaurant, ordered a bottle of wine, and had a lovely dinner and long chat.
Not one of us remembered to take a picture -- that's how engrossed we were! But we talked art and kids and families, and all sorts of other stuff. We heard about Karen's construction on her house, and Gerrie's amazing works in progress, and we all agreed that we're finding the Kiluea-inspired colors for our upcoming challenge to be a Challenge indeed! (But in a good way!)
We marveled at how far we've come as a group, and how we never would have imagined that we'd be where we are as a group. Of course, we talked about how lucky we feel to be in this with the rest of you twelves.
Wish you could have ALL been there!
