Progress and Possibilities...deadline extended!

Due to the U.S. Labor Day weekend, the deadline for entries for Progress & Possibilities has been extended to midnight on Wednesday, September 3rd.

Thank you!! Judy Belcher NPCG President

When we selected the dates for P&P, no one realized that the deadline for entries fell on a Holiday weekend. Please note that the above extension to midnight on Wednesday is MST as CaFE is based in that time zone.

By the way, have you seen Kim Cavender's new work? She'll be teaching her new organic techniques at Clay Carnival in Las Vegas in November.

Have a great weekend everyone!

My dad's art and new studio layout

I've needed to be in this corner...seeing outdoors. I've also needed to feel my dad's influence around me. Here is what my space looks like now, and here a couple of pieces of his. One is framed the other two are not. He also gave me that tiny little stained glass lamp...a cheapy made in China. He loved shopping out of those catalogs at Christmas time :o)

Autumn Mornings in NM...

I know it's not quite here yet, but I can feel a bit of a chill in the air. My husband Rudy and I are getting into healthy habits lately...we walk 2.5 miles on the bosque every morning. He even walks again in the PM with his sister Gloria who lives next door. Occasionally, we reward ourselves with our favorite breakfast, huevos rancheros (red chile for me)'s colorful and delicious.

Totally off topic here, but keep in mind that you only have 10 days to enter Progress and Possibilities. If you've never entered this annual exhibition/competition before, this is your chance. Entering on-line at CaFE has never been easier. This month is just flying by, so don't wait until the last minute!

My website... needed some serious updating. There are still bits here and there that need revamping. My biography page is one of them. I was able to put quite a few of my new Art Nouveau Earrings up can purchase a pair for yourself here :o)

Image formatting in CaFE

I purchased Adobe Elements 6.0 a few months ago, and haven't had time to properly play with the program. But, I have finally done a test image to CaFE specs.

I'm pleased to say it was *super* easy, so email me if any of you want to submit your work to Progress and Possibilities or ACRE's of Opportunity and I can walk you through it.

Can you imagine being able to create faces like this? Watching with the sweet acoustic guitar playing really got me missing him again.
