One of my most memorable early moments was during kindergarten in Chula Vista CA. We rode the train up to Del Mar and spent the afternoon amongst the tidepools. This glorious beach brought those images flooding back. The feeling of childhood discovery flooded over us as we found starfish and anemone.

I taught a class this year at Artfest called Marvelous Membranes. We focused on using hog gut, or sausage casings, as a covering for steel (iron) wire structures. Everyone had a unique experience and most loved working with it. We had a wonderful group of people who were definately troupers to try such a weird medium. These were objects laid out to dry. I was snapping photos so fast I lost track of who made what in some cases! I think these were some jewelry pieces Terese Wix was working on. And some delicate earrings with beads inside by Tonia Davenport.

I just loved the beach there at Fort Worden.. really all the Pacific coast area beaches we went to because they are so different from my area beaches. We have white sand and shells, no pebbles to speak of. Really, rocks here are rare! the piles of driftwood were nearly intoxicating for me. This worn tree stump was massive and old enough to gather moss.
