Hi friends. Three day weekends are officially one of my favorite things. Each day was jam packed with friends, fun and photo adventures, from a day of paddle boarding to an afternoon in a Locke community garden.
The waffle my little sister made me Sunday morning. Homemade chicken noodle soup. Spaghetti squash. A Reese’s peanut butter cup.
“S.O.S.” by Abba is stuck in my head right at this second.. Happens every time I watch “Mama Mia.”
Butter brickle ice cream. It’s extra yummy because they make it with a higher percentage of cream. Oh my.
The cold water of the Mokelumne while we paddle boarded Saturday. A cut on my foot. Relief that comes with art progress and good conversations.
Pieces of the old Chinese town, Locke, that I’m shooting in black and white for my photo class’s “forgotten places” assignment.
My week in camera photos (from top): Prayer flags hang in a local artist’s garden. The Fox Theater is beautiful, and hosted Kathy Griffin. Jen and I wrote about a mom-and-pop Mexican restaurant in town. Ah, Sophia and the hippie clothes. I made art for a big art show, which means I mounted lots of pictures on wood and canvases and covered them in bee’s wax. I also made pendants on Dominos and collaged a serving tray. The cafe scene is a painting I found at a thrift store, and I just fell in love with it. The tattoos are on the arm of an off-duty barista, who loves Starbucks so much that he had his own version of the ‘bucks logo tatted on his arm. Yep, I wrote about a nudist colony and interviewed naked peeps. The new pup, Sweetie, sleeps while I work on a project: not a good art partner, but at least she didn’t try to chew the supplies. And, my sister made waffles for breakfast.
