 One Million B.C. Part One
...British Columbia...that is...
An amazing time in Vancouver, that is.   Great bunch of students for my last minute workshop.  Here's my host Megan at the Upstart Crow Class act, to be sure...thanks to her, her husband Chris, and all those attendees.

Ran into a few old friends while I was wandering round the Northern lands, and made some new ones.    
After class I had a day to spend in the city and a number of my students pointed me in the direction of an amazing place....Baker's Dozen on Main St.
A super cool antique shop.  I had hoped the owner was around cuz  I really wanted to do a flip-cast but the staff didn't feel comfortable without her permission...bummer but I understand.  Even so it was a great experience, such an amazing bunch of goodies and so nicely displayed.  Best yet, they have a gallery, which is filled with assemblages made by the owner, Heather, and one the staff, Drew.  Very fun, very cool.  there were giant pigs and solar system models and weird dental tools and this and that and the other thing.    I ended up with an optometrist lens kit.  
 If you are ever'll dig it.
Okay...heading south to ArtFest tomorrow.
speaking of heading south....

One Million B.C. Part Two
...Burbank, California...that is 
This summer I'll be in I am not the new host to the Price is Right
..though...don't you think a deMeng'ed version of the Price is Right would be much better....lets get some rust on those bright colors.    Come to think of would be kind of fun be a game show host...something to ponder.   A Vincent Price version of Bob the way have you ever notice how much Bob Barker 
and Vincent Price look alike an evil twin sort of way.
But I digress...
I will be in Burbank to teach at the Carol Parks Studio 
 August 28, 29, and 30th.  The class I'll be doing is my Lost, Found and Reinvented class.  
A found object free for all.  It will be nice because we will have some time to build lots of nifty thing-ma-do-hickies.  Hope to see you there.

but for now...
see everyone at ArtFest...woohoo
