@ L.A.S.T. or Llano Art Studio Tour

I was honored to be asked to participate in Llano's first annual art studio tour or @ L.A.S.T. If you remember one of my first post of 2011, one of my goals this year is to turn one of our outbuildings into my studio. (no progress made on that yet, keep your fingers crossed). So even though I am studio-less, unless you count the livingroom floor a studio, I was asked to participate by showing some of my work at another artists studio. There were five artists plus the studio owner at this particular location. There were 16 studios on the tour. I managed to break away from my booth long enough to see 5 of them, It was fabulous to see the artists working in their own environment. You really must plan to attend next year, the only problem is that it is during Warrenton, so I plan to try to get the date changed.

this is the wonderful compound of artist Linda Gammage, where I showed my work.

this is Linda's darling potters studio
Some of her pottery,
Some of my work
Gotta go get some junk, more studio tour in my next post, stay tuned. Oh and the Llano Fiddle Fest is this weekend in Llano, if you've never been to a fiddle fest you must come, Lots of old time fiddl'n goin' on. See ya next time!!!

They are so amazing.After a record breaking cold winter, unyeilding drought, tropical force winds, hail, ice, and not to mention last summer's heat, they came, right on que, draping the landscape in resplendant glory; their brilliance a testament to the lavish and abundant gifts God gives us in this season of spring. In gratitude I share with you the beauty God has given us in our humble little cottage garden.

We have our garden started. Dream man Ron, turned the soil by hand with a pitch fork, we are tillerless you see. Hope we get rain soon!!! Spring Blessings to All.
