Forget-Me-Not

White Whale- Forget-Me-Not. Cathy Kiffney Studio
A whale is not like a fish in the sea.
A whale breathes air like you and me.

Beluga whales have a large forehead, a sign of their high intelligence. Beluga whales are, in fact, the smartest animals on earth with an average I.Q.  of 155, a level that would be considered near genius in humans.

Pictures from the Mother's Day Weekend show!

Towards the end of the weekend show I suddenly remembered ---oh, my gosh, pictures! By then the crowds had cleared and displays did not look as full but other people managed to snap a few and sent them to me.


Luna's studio and part of garden
I displayed some of my plates and bowl around the cat tails and bog garden. I plan to do more of this next year and make some real birdbaths. 

Rebecca and Miranda set tents up outside. 

Rebecca A. McLaughlin Neigher
The talented and sunny Rebbecca was a great source of good cheer through out the weekend! 
Mirinda Kossoff
Mirinda had just retured from a week long workshop the night before and in the rush forgot the tent canopy but we imporvied. It lasted until the rain came so she moved her b eautiful jewels display inside.

Luna Lee Ray
Inside, here is part of Luna Lee Ray's display, Paintings, mixed media, prints and cards.

Jean LeCluyse
Jean Leclyce had a wonderful selection of origional drawing and prints along with mixed media and cards.

Setting up for the weekend show

Comet, living in the moment
Show weeks are always hectic, it's good to take moments and just relax. 
Comet is a good role model.
I came across a simple little essay this morning,
words of wisdom from  Pema Chödrön.
Finch and Thistles, 16" diam, Cathy Kiffney


Set up for the Mother's Day Weekend Show is going wonderfully 
thanks to Luna's easy going manner.  
The rain has let up for now. Hope for good weather this weekend.
 This spring has been cool and lovely.

It has been raining here it seems like forever. I did not mind it so much today because it brought out the elusive Rain Bird. These legendary birds have never been seen in our area!

Let's go a-Maying!

Let's decry the puritans, bosses and profiteers!
 
Runaway Bunny, Cathy Kiffney


Come, let us go, while we are in our prime,
And take the harmless folly of the time!
We shall grow old apace, and die
Before we know our liberty.
Our life is short, and our days run
As fast away as does the sun.
Come, let's goe a-Maying!

CORINNA'S GOING A-MAYING.
