Ceramic Tuesday

The big event in town Tuesday was the Empty Bowls fundraiser for Agape Mission. As usual the lines were long as the crowd filled the Community Center ballroom. For $20 each guest got lunch and a bowl to take home.

Because an important part of this event is the ceramic bowls, I had to get involved. So last spring I joined a group of gals and helped to decorate bowls. 

Here is Cindy. She is the one who makes the "bowls" happen.
Thanks Cindy for all your hard work!
 Decisions, decisions; which one should I pick?

Some of these bowls may be the ones I decorated.

This is the silent auction table filled with the special creations.

And by the end of the day I had an added bonus. Here is the fun bowl I picked and a unique gift given by a friend.

Frida's Journal

I found it in the Spanish language section of my local library. It was the cover that caught my eye. But it what was on the pages that had me hooked. Frida recording her longings, feelings, ideas, plans, frustrations in word & pictures; and all those pictures make it a heavy book. She created an "art journal" in 1952-53, long before they became in vogue. And there many references to Diego (Rivera); the man she had trouble living with but couldn't live without.

This book is worth the effort just for the delicious artwork, but a plus for those of us who only know English, it's all translated for us.
