Spending Quality Time

Where have I been?

spending hours with my former full time employer as a freelancer.
In their fancy new space, which is planned out as a village. All the offices are little houses, or cabins or whatever. With streets of old posters (think Toulouse Lautrec) and antiques sprinkled in. With modern meeting rooms with huge plasma screened TVs for presentations.

Paulines little house

Lemonade on the veranda anyone?
So, mowing after work, and horse stall cleaning and maybe a little art later. But I am not complaining. you must make hay while the sun shines! And today I shipped out Sunday, Ft. Lauderdale, 3pm to the Quilted Surfaces VI show in Delaware and next weekend I will take my piece over to Oberlin to the Artist as Quiltmaker show.
Nope, I am NOT complaining!!!!

Friday Night Out

I'm not used to going out at night anymore. You would think I was 80 not 61! But for a long time my mother would panic if I went out for dinner or whatever. Last night I went to Asterisk Gallery in Tremont a suburb of Cleveland, very artsy-trendy. My friend Christine Mauersburger  was  part of an exhibition. Very cool work, tiny stitches that she takes from her sketchbook. I loved the patches on the wall too. I named her best in show! And nothing happened to me!  I didn't tell mom I went and all was well. Plus I got a great hand full of rusted nails and wood from the sidewalks. Now to make some more collages with my "free" pieces-parts.

Solo Show

Photos from my solo show at The Gathering Place,
800 Sharon Drive, Westlake Ohio 
Hours Monday thru Friday 9 -5. The show will be at this west side location for two months from April to June. Then it will travel to the east side location 23300 Commerce Park, Cleveland for two months. It is really great to see all the work hung together, especially my Things Your Mother Warned You About series.
The Gathering Place  is a really wonderful Hospice Center that offers a lot of services. Hopefully my work will give a lift to people's days.
Thanks to Eileen and TGP for the opportunity.
