Art & Friendship

First Annual Art & Friendship Weekend...

Art & friendship...what better combination can I conjure....
Thanks to Jill Wiener for hosting us and serving up a perfect day.
After breakfast at my home in Warwick, we drove caravan-style to the Earth Girl Studio and Jill's fabulous home and grounds in Sullivan County, New York. There, the 30 of us had a chance to get our hands dirty and learn the process to pottery-making. Jill did demos on her wheel, while her darling hubby Rich finished cooking our lunch. We ate pond-side, grateful for the shade in the 90 degree heat.
Shoes came off and toes were dipped to cool the soul... gardens were wandered and our art projects were finished just as Jill's pal Lisa served homemade cupcakes.
I cannot think of a more wonderful group of people to share a day.
Thanks to Earth Angels artists Kitty B, Nicky Bowen, Laurie Meseroll and Jennifer Lanne for being there to play with the clay and spend time with our collector friends. And thanks to our pals Gary and Dominic for tipping me off to Jill's booth at that craft fair so long ago!
Jill's work has an infections cheer, and through it she has helped us to celebrate art and friendship.

...more about our weekend together in the next post!
xxoo Jen
