Could have written about weeding on Saturday, but it would have simply read - am tired, weeded, need to veg in front of TV. MI-5 on KCET, dark, dark work done well.
Sunday was another matter. James and I spent the afternoon on a date in Claremont. Yes, after 30 years we still go on dates. We went into a stamp shop and found that we might have a key to our invitations. Periwinkle and mother of pearl, Tolkien and moonglow. But I digress...
Went into various shops and enjoyed the banners that were along Yale and adjoining streets. The good city of Claremont set up a citywide, all local artists call; selected artists were given a prefab banner, asked to paint their design, and were given $250 upon completion. Seems like a great way to bring in all levels of artists, have wide representation of work, and keep local business supported. Added a nice bit of color, defined place, and it was fun to see all the different styles and levels of technique used.
