rainbow colors

"You, whose day it is
get out your rainbow colors
and make it beautiful"

-from a card from my mom... a traditional Nootka song it says

Stripy rainbow socks worn at burning man for the Stripy sock competition! And for Self Portrait Tuesday!

Today I painted for the first time since moving my studio, about a month! What relief! Color, messy, freedom... no drapes!

We have Open Studios in about a month and I need to kick into gear. Yipes!

Meredith, Laurel & I made a mad dash to Scraps today 1/2 an hour before they closed. I got a couple old kid's books, canvases and stamps to fuel me.

Hugh is making fresh pesto with pumpkin seeds instead of pine nuts. it feels like fall today, crisp air.

I am trying to be more disciplined and a morning person... out of the door at 8am and into my studio with coffee in hand for 1 week and 2 days so far! Can she keep it up? It is so nice to be in before everyone else with my music blaring and slow waking up.

I went to Burning Man two years ago and wanted to go this year but couldn't. That is a great photo - it really captures the dust and colors of Burning Man. Wonderful!

I wish I lived closer to you. I think we could be very inspirational to each other. :)

Hey Mati-

I don't think you sent that photo in yet, did you?

I've extended the deadline by a week if you still want to enter.

Great blog, BTW, I just 'discovered' you today and have been enjoying trawling your archives.

xx Helen
