Last weekend was Art by the Bay art festival in Stanwood-Camano Island. After lightning hit a tree at the edge of the field and knocked out power, I figured we were in for a dramatic weekend. Fortunately, it was a good weekend, without more drama. There is a canopy over everything, but it was such gloriously bright day - once the thunderstorms rolled on by - that it looks as if it's open. My friend Mary Quintrall - www.maryquintrall.com - was my neighbor again. (We lived three houses apart for about ten years.) This weekend is the studio tour. I'll post images of that soon.
