been away

we had a nice weekend away in sun valley with another couple- stayed at the lodge, which is a fabulous historic building complete with sun valley serenade running continuously on one of the tv channels. perfect for getting in the holiday spirit.

we skied, swam in the heated outdoor pool, ate great food, heard good music & had an all round good time.

i didn't get much art made- haven't lately between running around, mother in law's stroke (she's better and was moved to rehab this weekend) and work, but things should slow down.
my hubcap was posted on the landfill art site i'm on (or around) page 13 if you'd like to see a bigger image. there is lots of great, inventive art to peruse on this site- a fabulous example of recycling cast off items into art.
i received notice that i was juried in to our local artist's coop gallery, the art source . yay! i can start storing stuff on their walls instead of in my closet :) maybe even sell something once in a while.... i have several friends who are members and am looking forward to working with them.
i will hear on the other group i applied for in mid january.
and now- off to the day job. happy holidays!
