It was an early start to the day. Here we are at the airport at 5:30. Getting up was not a problem as we were quite ready.
It was a lovely morning. We saw the sunrise on the way to Seattle.
Kathy looked very happy to set foot on the ground.
We picked up our car and headed to Kona to our condo. It was 87 when we left the airport. Felt pretty nice.
We’ve stayed at this place a couple of times before. Very nice spot on the rocky beach. It is next to the Royal Kona Resort where we stopped for a drink.
It really is a nice place to sit and look out over the water.
We went for a walk and Kathy thought she might need to look at one of Tania’s favorite stores.
We haven’t seen these guys before in Kona. They were quite ready to pose for pictures. The oldest one is 25, the youngest is 1.
Just finished painting a carved fish. It is like a rock greenling, but coloured a bit differently. It’s carved out of red cedar and is about 24” long. The base is a piece of a maple burl.
The Sidney Fine Arts Show ended this afternoon and it ended up being good for us. Kathy sold both of her pieces! Looking forward to the studio tour this coming weekend.
We were at the show this evening for artists’ night and when Kathy saw her wall hanging, she got a very big smile!!
It was exciting to see a red dot beside this lovely wall hanging!
“A Covey of Patio Birds” is in the Sidney Fine Arts Show this weekend and I am pleased to hear that it has sold.
Kathy has two wall hangings in the Sidney Fine Arts Show this coming weekend.
This one is called “September.”
This one is called “Nature Reclaims.”
We are getting ready for two upcoming events; the Sidney Fine Art Show and the Fall Studio Tour.
We took our work down to Sidney Tuesday morning. Kathy has two beautiful wall hangings and I have a cute branch of patio birds in the show. That’s part of it in the photo. The art show starts on Thursday this week with patrons night, then opens for everyone open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
We are also taking part in the Fall Studio Tour and have been busy creating some new work.
This is a large maple bowl with 3 orcas carved into it.
Another new piece is this branch of patio birds.
The studio tour is on Oct. 20 and 21, 10:00 to 4:00.
We both have had work accepted for the Sidney Fine Arts Show at Mary Winspear, Oct. 12, 13, 14.
This is a cute yard bird having a look at a very cute Garden Quilt. Both of these pieces were at the Horticultural Centre this weekend.
We hope to have work in the Sidney Fine Arts Show in October. We’ll be taking our entries to Sidney for adjudication in a couple of weeks.
We’ll be participating in Art & Music In The Gardens at the Horticultural Centre of the Pacific on Aug. 25 and 26. We think this will be our 7th year. We hope to see lots of visitors. Parking has changed back to the field near the entrance; (should be much better than the shuttle.)
