Thursday Miscellaneous

It happens every spring. April showers bring May flowers, they say... and hopefully will also melt a bit of our snow. With near a foot still on the roof of my garage and a crusty layer of many inches on the yard, it is had to believe Tomorrow is opening day for Major League Baseball. Well, as they say, it happens every spring.

Our geese finally started laying. To give an idea of how much delayed spring is this year compared to last, March second was the opening of goose egg laying season here.

One of my brothers had a birthday this week. Another brother boarded a plane for China.

Tomorrow the big tattoo to-do will be a-happening at a weekend event called the Clyde-O Scope, with three days of live music, and even some live painting Friday and Saturday night. The paintings will be auctioned off as a donation to the Duluth Children's Museum. The Fractals are one of many talents slated to perform.

In other news, the Duluth Art Institute art auction/fund raiser is this weekend, “Goin’ Mad at the Rad” on Saturday, April 2, 6 – 11 pm. It's a theme based party based on the TV series "Mad Men" which will include the auctioning off of some serious art as well innumerable 5"x 7" pieces created especially for this purpose, including a few by yours truly. Money will be used to fund future events at the DAI. If Saturday night you see a bunch of people here looking like they just stepped out of the 60's, you'll know where they've been.

I myself will be painting with Jeredt Runions and others at the Clyde-O-Scope at nine both Friday and Saturday, so if you are a follower of this blog and want to say hi, you should be able to find me. And if you'd like to add a splash of color to a painting we're making, you're welcome to do that, too.

Wherever you be, have a great weekend.
