While she was there, my son called ; when I called him back, he asked how the show was going - I was touched by his thoughtfulness. He's learning about artists' needs to help them with the grant application process.
Kelly Burlingham http://www.stillmotionglass.com/ , the glass artist in my building gave a demonstration of fusing colored squares in the kiln and twisting them into long canes as they emerge. Tomorrow, she's making glass candy canes - so much fun to watch and see others enjoy.
I was about to leave at 5: 15 when my friends Daryl and Gretchen arrived ;"but it says until 6 on your postcard ", said Daryl. We've been to many art events together so I asked her to distinguish between an original watercolor and a giclee - fine art print. " You can see the paint on the surface in this one"- she's one sharp cookie ! They both bought some photo cards from me- 5 for $7 ; Gretchen likes the turtle images, reminds her of being in Hawaii. They also enjoyed the grapes and almonds from "Twin Girls" at the Noe Valley farmers' market.
