Two Kinds of Hot


When I was at the market picking out these peppers, there were many small bushels full to choose from. But no one bushel was a perfect pepper collection (in my opinion) so I traded one from another and ... got caught! The lady was nice enough, but I couldn't help but feel about 3 years old.

I felt more like an adult yesterday while I was making several new artist friends in Portland - special, Oregon artists! We had a lovely brunch at Randall David Tipton's house, and he was gracious enough to show us his studio and his beautiful paintings. I have admired his work for a long time! And as if that wasn't enough, I also got to meet Annie Salness, Cathleen Rehfeld, Jo Reimer and Celeste Bergin - all incredibly nice AND great artists. You can't beat that kind of Saturday. Here we are:

Love the painting! Your shaping of bowls always slays the depth of your oranges too. So happy you have some new artist friends in Oregon!! Yay- now y'all just need to all live on the same block together:):)

I bet your FACE was hot, too! Ooooh, I hate that!

So happy for you to have met those artists - it makes 'home' feel more like a real home when you have colleagues and new friends. xo

you look wonderful and the values inside the bowl are slammin'.
Love the bright edge and of course your fresh clean color sings!!
