my baby boy (left), david, 20, left this morning. he's moving to montana to continue his education at montana state university. i'll miss him soooo much. but i'm happy for him, too. he's making the trip with his best friend, john, who's been attending MSU for a couple of years now. the plan is filmmaking. it's something they've wanted to do for a while now.
they're both artists at heart. john has amazing drawing skills. david's been into acting and improv for several years now.
they're both clever and witty. can't wait to see what they create!

off to see the wizard

This is my daughter's 2nd summer participating in Perseverance Theatre's STAR program for kids. They get 4-5 weeks, 5-6 hrs per day, of professional theater training. Last year she performed in Annie, Jr. This year she's in The Wizard of Oz. Last night was opening night. As you can see, the plays are performed in an outdoor theater at the University of Alaska Southeast here in Juneau. My daughter is on the right; her face is a bit in the shadows, and she's next to the person wearing glasses.

the hands of an artist

i'm in a swap wherein we trace our hands, create art on the front (thumbs up!) and then hand-write an art quote on the back. so here's my hands! (fronts only.)
