Ayr was great -- More tomorrow

Hi we got back from Ayr quite late, so I'll have
to save my description and photos until tomorrow.
It was a wonderful day and evening, and I met
so many great women, and had amazing talks.

Thanks to Jill Yuzwa, Kim Rempel and Jeanette
Vermeyden-Obbink for organizing International
Women Celebrate -- a super event, and
to all of the 100 plus women for a superb show.
It opens officially on March 9th, and is well
worth the drive to Ayr.

My painting today describes the awesome sunsets
we've been getting, the snow that doesn't seem to
want to go away, and the grass and greenery coming
back.  On the way to Ayr today most of the snow was
melting.  When we got home we watched a movie,
and when we looked out the window again there
were six inches of snow on the ground!  Come on
winter.  Let my people go!

Have a-getting-ready-for-spring day.
