Wonderful summertime stuff

Ahh, summertime and life is good.  Time for family and friends.

This week I had the chance to meet a long time artist friend in person.  We were both member of an on-line art community "Art Colony" for a long time until the site wrapped up.  Most of us still keep in touch on-line.

Helen Shideler and Christianne Fortin

Christianne Fortin and I were able to spend two evenings together getting to know each other in person and immersing ourselves in art talk.  And all things creative.  I am so happy and grateful we had this opportunity to get together.  

And these guys.  I sure miss them.  Vancouver is so far away.  Looking forward to all the family visits we have planned for this summer!
