3 plus inches of rain in 8 days!

So really, we hardly had any snow this past winter, and the lakes up here are really suffering. June 7th was the last day the sun was out, I kid you not. The rains came, which makes life difficult since it's hard to get things dried and fired. And with the rain came temps in the upper 50s and mid 60s. Brrr. Oh well, at least my garden is very happy for the rain. And our rain buckets are full. I have been throwing bowls and plates, so will be busy painting tomorrow.

Early June

We have been busy in the studio and at craft shows this May and June. The rains have greened up the northwoods but it still is considered in drought conditions. Besides working and selling at our studio we also hit the road and sell at craft shows. That has it's own set of problems, mostly bad weather. I was at New Richmond WI last Saturday, June 5th and we got shut out by the morning drizzle turning to rain by 1 pm. I hate packing up in the rain, but oh well, it's what we do! Barry will be setup at Saint Germain WI's "Walk in the Woods" art show this Saturday June 10th. I'll be working at the studio.
Hope to see you there, or here!
