Hold the formal, get out your sweaters, jeans and rubber boots!


Hi everyone.  I am going to take part in the
International Women Celebrate show opening
on International Women's Day, March 8th.  But
tomorrow the artists have a day to themselves
to meet and talk about whatever strikes their
fancy.  Many of us who comment on one another's
blogs will be meeting for the first time and
I am so excited about that.

As a  sort of zany tribute to this event, I got
the idea to do a comical video hello, emphasizing
how ridiculously cold it is here.  Weather in
this part of the world is not at its best...yet.
So although my humour in the video is about
partying in the middle of freezing weather and
snow, it is actually a bit milder and raining.

Ayr is a beautiful small town. But I anticipate
that when a group of women artist/bloggers
meet it will be both incredibly fun and exciting,
and heavy on information sharing, the hows
and what to dos of making art, showing in
galleries and blogging.  These are huge topics
and every single one of us must care about that.

That's why my little video that I'm going to attempt to
post today is funny because I will not be wearing
a semi-formal tomorrow.  I will not in all probability be
outside at all, and I will be loving every minute of
my time with the amazing women I'll be meeting.



Have an enjoying-meeting-new-people day
