Spring is Springing!

I do think spring has finally sprung. The rhubarb is looking better! I have mowed the lawn twice. It was long and I hate to rake it.

The branch pile has grown to a good size, the property lines have been cleared of all the "foofus" my neighbors can't be bothered to clean up.
Just saying.

Storms are predicted for later tonight and rain for all weekend.

The studio assistant was not in a good mood. She hates rain. And a bath has been mentioned. If she keeps rolling in stinky stuff on the lawn, the mention will come to fruition. Just saying.
Oh Mom, really?
Yes, my stinky little friend. A nice warm spring bath!

A First

My first invitational. The Pushing the Surface Show at the Johnson-Humrickhouse in Coshocton, Ohio. I have seen shows here and it is a very interesting setting. A gorgeous brick colonial with tons of interesting artifacts, it will be fun to see how things are displayed. A definite stop if you go to see Quilt National.
I don't think the color is very good on this photo but I finished it in February and between the weather and losing my camera to thieves I had a hard time shooting it.
It is my sophomore and senior photo enlarged and then cut into strips and pieced back together. Part of my self-deconstruction series. Next is a photo of my dad that is real classic shot from the 40's, could lead to interesting treatments.
Tonight was a new experience for me, I was working my part time church secretary job and I was invited to attend a practice mass for a seminarian. Antony is from India and a very nice man, tonight he sang the mass and gave a sermon and did a wonderful job. Imagine singing all that in a foreign language and giving a sermon also. We have a lot of people in this country who couldn't do it in English let alone another language. Great job Antony!
