A couple of weeks later, we marched in the Constitution Day Parade with the Merry Widows. Our theme was “Get your tails to the voting booth!”

Some friends and I trekked to Roseville for the reception of “Politically Charged.” Here I am with Governor Moonbeam. He comes back home on October 2, but he was happy to be out on display for a month.

Coming up quickly is the Western Nevada County Studio Tour. I will be sharing my studio with painter Alex Henderson. Studio tour dates are the second and third weekends in October, 8-9 and 15-16 from 10 until 5pm. An opening reception is October 6, 6-9pm at the Grass Valley Center for the Arts. There will be one piece of artwork for each artist at the Center, September 29 through October 16.
