It seems like the feet of this guy playing a musical instrument are off the playing card but it is just how my scanner scanned the image.  

Our Oregon retreat is quickly coming to a close.  Today we worked all day creating and even bound some books.  Lots of creativity going on around here.

I am posting twice today since I forgot yesterday.  100% rain predicted for today.  So I guess we will just have to do art all day long.  Oh so sad! :-).

No post yesterday as we were so busy I forgot.  I made another caterpillar stitched book which I will show you soon.  We gelli plated which was so much fun.  We got our papers painted for a new seeded journal and I got several rubbings done for an ATC project that I am working on.  Then we watched Mare of Easttown.  OMG!  What a good show!

 Today at the ocean was so much fun.  We worked on making book cloth for our eco-dyeing books.  We played the journal game where in a round robin method we gave prompts….some people know this as the prom game.  We had an amazing breakfast out at Wanda’s in Nehalem.  Tonight we got stuck watching an HBO series which kept us on the edge of our seats.  Totally awesome day!

 Today in Manzanita, OR the Creative Gents are eco-dying.  We found lots of ocean vegetation to try to see what might happen.  The plan was to use the hot plate outside to boil the papers and the steam the cloth but it did not work.  So we have the boiling and steaming process going on inside.  The house smells of the ocean as we have lots of seaweed between our papers and rolled up cloth.  It sure has been a fun day.

 I had a bit of scanning problems and had to use a different scanner and the WiFi was not cooperating.  So the figure seems a bit light but I like it anyway.


We arrived in Manzanita, OR today and we all are really happy with the house.  Tomorrow might be our only day of sun.

I am off on my trip to Manzanita, Oregon for the Creative Gents retreat.  Can’t wait to see my art buddies. We usually get together every two years but because of Covid we did not meet up last year.
