Back home now

Home sweet home! Our trip was a blast! The concert was incredible! Plus we had some great visits with some long time friends.

I can't forget to mention that I met fellow blogger, Cynthia Guajardo, at the Summer Art Market in Denver. I forgot my camera that day, so she took the pics with hers. Follow the link to see them. I bought a wonderful vase from her, I will get a photo posted later. I also just received a card from her in the mail with a wonderful fabric postcard, thanks Cynthia! She is such a sweet lady!

The Police concert was the best concert I've ever seen! The opening band was Fictionplane, whose lead singer/bassist happens to be Sting's son. They were awesome! We got their cd, they were so good. The Police played all my favorite songs, and it was so incredible to see Stewart Copeland banging away on the drums in person!

On Sunday, June 10th, we spent the day up north of Fort Collins, visiting the spot next to the Poudre river where we were married, and eating dinner at the diner where we used to regularly go when we lived there.

When we came back, rather than driving straight down I-25, we decided to travel the back roads thru Alamosa, Colorado and Taos, NM. Beautiful drive! I doubt we will ever travel I-25 going north again.

Anyway, today(and most likely all weekend) I will be busy moving in to my new studio at the Factory on 5th. I will post some photos of our trip and the new studio once I get the computer all set up there. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!!!

Yay, you made it home safe! I so enjoyed meeting you too, Paula. Your trip back home sounded wonderful. I like the Alamosa area too and the Sand Dunes - did you get a peek of them?

Paula, sorry I haven't had much time to do much blogging but I saw your picture on Cynthias blog. I loved seeing you both together.

I always enjoy seeing your abstracts spirals, I love the last one.

Thanks for the comments!

Cynthia,
We wanted to see the dunes, but it was rainy and cloudy so we didn't go up there.

Mary,
So good to see you here! Hope all is well!

Wasn't it fun to meet Cynthia? I saw her at the sale too. And got a postcard. What a neat lady she is.

I love the drive you are talking about. Not in the winter as La Vita Pass can be intimidating in a snow storm, but otherwise it is so pretty.

oh what a lovely trip it sounds like. I bet you are ready to relax or at least get back to some art routine.
