Laying stone for hardscape has made the yard much more interesting. I now have a patio under the tree, one in front of the studio, a winding path leading to the backyard and all of the vines I have put on the fence are growing beautifully. I envisioned the yard to be softened by the vines so eventually the fence will be completely covered. This Friday the show is at the Rotary Centre and I want to have some of my medium sized pieces of canvas art for sale. I look forward to interacting with people and seeing the other artists. My friend, Karla, will be next to me and I always enjoy her company. This is the last quiet week. Next week I will be very busy with classes and having guests. Then in August I begin the adventure of going out into the world. Nervous and excited.
