taken this afternoon- we had a little drizzle this morning.
My social calendar has started with a bang! Birthday party, aperetivo with friends, lunch with another friend, an italian lesson..
I was at a concert on Saturday evening listening to pianist Julian Gargiulo. You can hear his music here.
|Teatro Ristori in Verona|
He is Italian from Verona and was living in New York for many years. I met him when he was performing in Toronto.

I have unpacked my fabrics for sewing and yarn for knitting.
Judy Martin gave me a great idea for while I am away from my studio. She suggested I choose 3 of my daily postcards and re-make them. Copy them but larger. Go from 4"x 6" to 12" x 18". I can do that.
|Four of my past postcards that I have chosen.|
It will be an interesting experiment. I don't like copying. The part of art I like is the "doing". I like creating and thinking of how I want things to be and so when I make my daily postcards, I never go back to them. What I wanted to say is said. But I think I will enjoy re-making the postcards because I won't have my usual supplies with me. Looking for new materials I can use to express the same idea could be a fun challenge. Thanks Judy.
Today at the studio instead of sewing we cooked!
We had a friend from the province of Puglia (the heel of the boot) come in and teach us the tradition of orecchiette.
Hand work. Tradition. Women's work. Creating of a different kind.
