This is inspired by a Japanese print in a series of views of Mount Fuji.
I forgot who did it.
I guess I'm a little distracted.

Today I passed most of the day having a moving sale. The weather was cold and smoky in the morning and few people came by and bought only small knick-knacks, but later friends and neighbors passed by and some of the best deals were picked up. I ended up having sold for about $60!
I'm moving out the first of July, to the day 15 years since I moved in. That's in three days and the mess is growing around me!

Susanne and Toby, who are to live here, are already working in the 'studio' and in the back yard. They are a sweet young couple - and Toby, tanned and golden-haired, trim and muscled - well, it's hard to not stare at him all the time. He's cool, and he says I can put all my stuff in the garage till I find a place, so I'm free to float around.
First I'll house-sit in Shawn and Michelle's nice house for a couple of weeks. They have internet, but I may run into problems and you'll have to bear with me if it takes time.

When i first came to the West Coast I stayed in the Berkeley hills with a view right through the Golden Gate. From that time dates my love for this bridge that has become for me a symbol of connection between opposites, a crossroads between a natural water way and a man made road.

I know I have shown you ManBabies before, but this one is so hilarious that I can't pass it by.

This one I had to fight with and it took me several days to finish.

All this house hunting and school and the many parties of early summer kept me away from painting for a while, but here is this week's new water color.

Yesterday was the last day of the ceramics class. We showed our work and everybody talked a little about the class. There was really a lot of nice things, but nobody had made as many things as I, 26 pieces!
I'll miss the class, but it's time to concentrate on the next task: finding a new house and moving into it.
