* Artisans Fair and Art Show Reception ...

Kathleen and I spent a lovely day yesterday poking around the artisans fair, having a lovely lunch and generally having fun.  We both bought new hats.  My off white panama is on the way out, and Kathleen looked so wonderful in the hat she tried on -- well you know how it is, she just had to have it!

How gorgeous!

The glands under my chin are so swollen I look like I'm smuggling walnuts!  he he

In the evening we were off to Ezshwan Winding's one woman show of her wonderful encaustic paintings.  It was fun, and as usual, Ezshwan's work is quite spectacular.  It was a show of her more abstract modern pieces.  She also does incredible portraiture, which I'm in love with.  I hope to take Kathleen on a studio tour so she too can appreciate it.

Ezshwan and me.
One of Ezshwan's pieces I particularly like.

For whatever reason, the photo's I took yesterday did not turn out great - so that's it for today.  We had a grand time and met lots of very interesting people, some of which we hope to see again.

Hope you are having a great day.  Your visits mean a lot to me, and I adore your comments.  Take care.  xxoo  Donna
