After 10 years of initiating Scrabble games with John, I finally won by using all 7 tiles and spelling "unevenly." It gained me an extra 50 points, enabling me to win by 31 points...but who's counting anyway!
I taught a Garden Angel Workshop at Artistree last Saturday. The "base angel" was one of store owner Nancy Nelson's pre-cut metal angel shapes. A sturdy and durable surface to work on. Nancy was out-of-town so we had the run of the place...
The five of us had a great time and everyone went home with a completed Garden Angel! The perfect way to spend a hot Saturday afternoon -in an air-conditioned studio! There were a lot of different supplies and steps but we still managed to spend some time chatting and share a few giggles.
I now present the artists and their fabulous creations!
Carol's Garden Angel
Joanne's Garden Angel
Mary's Garden Angel - welcome to Reno Mary!
And Patty's Garden Angel.
If you are interested in making a Garden Angel, let me know. We may do it again in August, just 'cause July is soooo busy with Artown!
High Sierra Animal Rescue told us that Misha was a Jack Russell Terrier-X ...that's "X" for Cross/Mix/Part-Mutt. If she's a cross of anything it is JRT and Devil Dog...and now we have the photo to prove it...look at her eyes!
and now for some balance, here's a cute photo of her telling John she's been blinded by her toy and can't see...please...HELP...ME!!!!
Indestructible cute doggie toy available at Bark Avenue in Plumgate Plaza on the corner of Plumb and Arlington...will occasionally blind your pet which will make you laugh hysterically until you cough up a lung...
Before I share some pics of Friday night at Nada Dada, here's some of the National Disabled Cyclists race that was part of the Tour De Nez Friday afternoon. It was awesome and inspiring to see these athletes coming up the hill on Flint Street. Amazing determination and some trick cycles!
And now on to this weekend's 3rd annual Nada Dada exhibit on floors 2-4 of the historic art deco El Cortez Hotel and across the street at the Town House Motor Lodge...details here: Reno News and Review article
Hallway in the El Cortez ... each of the artists rents a room for the weekend
Jeff, neon guy and a couple of his artist friends
Yes...that were cooking absinthe
Of course I snapped a photo...there's a bird....
John in the velvet painting/black light room
Some cool neon by Elaine Parks on a burnt out newspaper box in front of the Town House mini-mart
And the grand finale - Mr. Potato Head ...Mr. Dildo Head to you in the Room of a 1000 Dildos...LOL!
After the art, on the way back to our car...which was conveniently parked across from NMA...we stopped at Strega for a brew. I enjoyed a Doppelganger Blonde without the trip to Carson..a perfect end to a great Friday night...
