Another month, another second Wednesday and ...
7 "Eastsider's" got together to stir up an art project.
Linda was our fearless leader & we were to make
our own versions of metal sitting dolls. We did.

It was an all day project.
One that looks easier than it is.
But we all had fun.

These figures are:
created on sanded 
light weight metal -
roof flashing, 
cut with tin snips,
with gel medium,
collage papers,
a variety of fabrics,
markers and paint,
ribbons and buttons,
decorative items.

Once folded, 
they can sit on a 
mantle or bookshelf.

In between laughs, stories, no phones or tv, 
we seven sat around a big table and had fun.
Can you tell? 
Thanks Linda!

Across the street from Linda's perfect cottage ...
the City of Costa Mesa, knowing that I love rusty stuff ...
brought in huge, giant wheels, about 20 feet high?

Okay, maybe 8 feet high, for me to get close ups.

Thank you City of Costa Mesa. I liked it a lot,
but Linda & Robert are ready for you to go. 

A smile for Friday ...
