Here are images of a couple of new pieces. Both bowls are about 14 inches in diameter. I used a transfer technique to get the center image, which is a scanned print of one of my drawings. The outer pattern was handpainted right on the bowl. Enjoy! The bowls are currently on display at Rijks Family Gallery

Drove over Kebler Pass to Paonia on Thursday, June 24. Picked up my work from the show at Glennie-Coombe Gallery. Left a couple of pieces in the Gallery. Here is a photo of the Gallery on main street in Paonia. Right next door is Ollie's Ice Cream Parlor. Always have to have ice cream when I am there!!!

Terrific Tuesday - Summer begins

On May 22 we had visitors -- Niece Alex Lunde and her husband Matt, niece Kelly Decker and her boyfriend, Joe, and nephew Nathan Trifone. It was fun to have them here. Got a great photo of Richard with Kelly and Alex. There was still alot of snow on Whetstone mountain when they were here.

Father's Day

Tomorrow is Father's day. Will spend time with my father at a BBQ at the Willows Annex, one of my many nicknames for the health care center where he and my mom reside. My twin cousin, Margie, is coming that day for a visit. It will be great to see her. I hope to manage to make the day special for my wonderful husband as well.

Spent the day yesterday preparing clay and then throwing some large bowls. Recently I have been doing some pencil drawings of mandala like designs inspired by nature. I hope to transfer these images to the large bowls that I am making.

Monday in the Mountains

Today I had a nice drive to Gunnison, Montrose, Delta, Paonia and home over Kebler Pass. (Shopping in Montrose followed by dental appointment in Delta.)The top of the pass still had lots of snow. As I topped the pass and began the descent the ground in the "triangle" was covered with snow. The road to Lake Irwin and the Ohio Pass road were snowed in. The road to the Irwin townsite had been plowed. It was a beautiful drive. --  Just posted this image of a platter that I recently completed.

They were able to see my new work on display in this group show at the Gunnison Arts Center. There was music in the courtyard and lots of people enjoying the evening. Great fun for all!
