Gord's making paintings in his studio like a real artist, for display at Miami International Art Fair; every morning I paint another chair. Then, when its too hot in the garden, I open the door and Spaffy slips past my feet. .
Crystal skies, baking sun, cool shade. At this time of year, it's paradise. Sometimes all I can do is stare.
At Roberts Creek Pier, Dean gave me a lecture on Friday: if we didn't arrive at 12 noon on the dot, Rob was going to give away our reserved painting space on the Mandala.
Erica Snowlake has been a co-creator of the Mandala at Roberts Creek Pier for many years with Rob and other volunteers. That's Ben Low. He shot our film (http://www.fatsalmon.ca/themovie/home.html), ten years ago.
And now, here's Gord making clouds out of the whale's tail. Sunday, Day Out of Time had dancers on the Mandala, mothers nursing their babies; toddlers swaying to the drumbeat. We walked the glittering beach.
