Really Random Thursday, 3/9/23

 On Thursday night, Mark and I went to a venue downtown because several Fresno Unified art classes had an art display, including fifth grade classes from the elementary school that Gabe and Ruby attend. 

The art was very well displayed. We just missed Gabe and the family, but we were able to talk to the art teacher as well and learn a little more about the technique. 

Ruby's art work:

On Friday night, we attended the high school musical that Charlotte has spent countless hours working on since Christmas. This time, instead of having one of the acting parts, she worked behind the scenes as assistant stage manager, and said she loved that position.
The musical was Something Rotten, set during the Renaissance. It was a really funny play and the singing and acting was really very good. I plan on seeing it one more time.

This was out in the lobby. Haha...

Being a huge Pickles fan, these are too funny and need to be shared.

And that's about it...

Love the Notan artwork. I made a black and white quilt using the Notan principle for a quilt show the BoulderMQG did a few years ago. I've always wanted to try another one. Also got a good chuckle from the comics. So so true. I hope you aren't too effected by all the bad weather Cali is experiencing. Have a great weekend.

What a cool art technique and beautiful writeups by Gabe and Ruby!

Like Anne, I thought I saw Notan in your grandchildren's artwork. It's an interesting design concept, and one that would be fun to explore in fabric. Isn't it nice that you can watch your grandchildren grow and bloom in school, and their interests? You know how fortunate you are, right? Thanks for sharing the Pickles comics too. They both gave me a chuckle because... well... we know they're true!
