Suddenly, it is April. Last week tumbled by me quickly, and now it's not only April, but it is April Seventh. Each day has brought news, plans, changes. Last Thursday, I found out that the group show that I am getting ready for at Evergreen (which opens the 25th) is not so much a group show as it is the Kaycee and Lisa show. I don't know what happened to the rest of the group, but now that Lisa and I will have the gallery all to ourselves, the wall space is looking bigger and bigger. So how do I deal with that daunting news? Hit the trails for an afternoon hike. Kelty and I did an eight mile jaunt through the Alder Springs Canyon, considering it was springlike and I needed some fresh air.

Friday night, we went to Thump for the Bend Art Hop, where we got to chat with Christine (my DuBuhDu friend) and her family- Mark and Andres. Owl and I also discovered a new art space in Bend (right next door to Thump) called Poet House Art. Sarah, one of the administrators, gave me a brief Low Down of the space and it's concept- they want to build a community service based art space. The space is upstairs in one of Bend's older buildings, and it has a funky urban vibe, with wood walls, big windows and canvas panels dividing the studios. I can't wait to learn more about this group.
After the art hop, we went to the cabin for some lamb and wine with Joe. I logged it as studio hours and not relaxing time, however, since I spent most of the evening flipping pages and cutting out shapes, while the boys talked sports.

The rest of the weekend was spent in the studio: listening to NPR concert's of Neko Case, Nickel Creek, and Bon Iver, cutting and pasting and cutting some more, playing ball with kelt when needing a stretch, thinking- "I have less then three weeks to pull this together. Brilliant."
