I went in and had a quick lunch with my intern Candice as we made plans for the printing of my fabrics...as soon as I learn a thing or two about this printer. We reviewed last night's events and the power of providing young artists with worthwhile experiences to fuel their futures. My calligrapher friend Barbara Clagget came in for a surprise visit and we rejoiced in her recovery from Breast cancer and a mastectomy last November. She now lives in Utica so we do not get to see her very often...I must get up to see her in her new surroundings and possibly have a quick lunch.
Then I met my police officer and his companion specialist dog Ike dropped by with Officer Tim and his new charge Bear. I am half through my sketch of Ike and then we went out photograph a very eager Bear. He is well trained and charged out of the police vehicle ...ready to report to duty. These animals serve and protect their masters in investigations and criminal activities. The breed is a Belgium Malinois and they are intelligent and dedicated animals...we should be proud of the men and dogs who serve our community to keep us safe.
George Leach a painter friend...and lawyer by day ...stopped by to invite Ken and I over to the Short North for the pre-Gallery Hop in the Short North. The way the week is going ...I probably won't be able to attend ...I am waylaid by my works in process and March is Friday!!! Where did the month go???
I am continuing to work on a the collage for Larry and darah when I looked up...Larry came in with the wall hanging for the new baby's rooms. I told Larry I would take it home ...cut the fabric and make a sleeve to attach by tomorrow. It was easier than trying to explain how it should be done...this new father to be is getting the room ready for family to view this weekend for the shower. Larry is getting a bit anxious ...with just weeks to go.
and here is the continuation of my progress of the collage...
