In my now twelve years of blogging, I've included personal news, thoughts about art, my own professional development and other items along the way. It feels sort of hodge podge... which is not the way blogs are anymore, really. Or are they?
With that in mind, a few personal updates...
We celebrated Benjamin's birthday.
A baby bunny appeared on our back porch and Lincoln really wanted to play.
I took a trip to North Park Center where they had a wonderful exhibition of portraits of artists taken by photographer Bruce Weber.
I especially liked this one of Andrew Wyeth... with my reflection.
There is so much wonderful art at NorthPark, but I found this collection of mannequins interesting too.
We tried out a new Thai ice cream place where the pour the base liquid on a super cold plate, spread it out, then roll it up and slide the rolls into a cup. Then add toppings. Can you see the rolls in this picture?
We haven't had a family portrait taken in several years... so we did that!
Here is an outtake I snapped with my camera.
Claire is racing to the end of her time in high school. We had two special events last week.
Her Academic Decathlon team was recognized at the school board meeting.
And she received a scholarship from the Daughters of the American Revolution.
My life is pretty full and I feel lucky. More art stuff soon.
