 It's SUMMER!!
It's HOT!!
So why am I holed up striping this Blue Corduroy???
Because I am crafting a pair of Blue Corduroy Ski Knickers for my December 27, 2014 show at Friesen Gallery in Sun Valley, Idaho!!
This show will be a tribute to The Sun Valley Ski Resort featured in the 1941 film "SUN VALLEY SERENADE" starring Sonia Henie, John Payne, Glenn Miller and many more.
I'll be making winter all summer long so if you get too hot, stop on by and cool your heels!

SOOOO my friends,
I have been workin' on a few things. Preparing for a winter show in Sun Valley, Idaho at the FRIESEN this show will honor the 1940's ski resort ala Sun Valley Serenade, the film featuring Sonia Henie Olympic Ice Skating champ! I'm ready to paint a whole lot of blue corduroy (paper of course) to craft a pair of ski knickers!
My summer chores are upon me: Paper paper paper! Prepare prepare prepare!
I've also been working on some new music. How to share it with you I've yet to decide.
But for now I'll post a pic of my Cardboard Sled which will be a part of the
exhibit at Friesen.
