This weekend has been a fun one. Spending time on art was only a small part of my activities. Steve and I spent a wonderful afternoon with some friends at the National Museum of the American Indian. I also spent some time knitting, one of my favorite activities during the winter months.
Another thing that happened over the course of the weekend is that I have been honored by two artist I admire very much. Brenda from Musings by Artslice and Theresa Rankin both tagged me. It is very special being recognized by these two wonderful women, as they bring such joy into my life. I enjoy reading their blogs and learning about art from their different and informed perspective. Brenda also has another wonderful blog that is like an art dictionary, this one is Artslice. Check it out if you get a chance.

5. I am dyslexic and I am a slow reader, however I love reading and always have a few books going.
