A sneak- peek!


So, I have made some progress on a rather large piece of pottery. This is a very up-close shot of a utensil crock (thrown by Gary Rith). I still have much to paint, but I wanted to show how great "olive drab" works as a background color! I will use your glaze mistakes anytime, dear Gary!

Yesterday was the annual Maple Fest in Marathon, NY! Every year we take the double decker train from Cortland to Marathon- it is a bit of a "Spring Tradition"! Although, almost every year it rains, we taste the maple candy, syrup, and The usual "fair food". We see the craft show, and I say "Hi" and catch up with artisans I haven't seen in a while. I'm always looking for new local artists that might be interested in displaying their work in my gallery. Every year we come home tired, wet, cold and muddy with a big jug of NY State maple syrup, and a feeling that it is SPRING!
The photo is Don and Wils riding the train to Marathon!
