climbing


the question is, which ladder to take?... i see lots of temptations and deterrents here, but there's no way to really know what lurks above unless you pick one and give it a go... maybe there's something rotten waiting after that delicious sundae, like that iffy-looking person already paving the trail, or who knows, perhaps unexpected delights are in store once you're past that tough rung of nails. personally, i'd like to know who left that empty soda cup on ladder two. litterer.

speaking of unexpected delights, we had an unbelievable turnout last night for the opening of don't eat the art. lori and rachel, the owners of blue plate dinners, did a fabulous job with the media blitz, generous hospitality and excellent food. the crowd was a mix of good friends and lots of new faces. a big thanks to robin, the other artist in the show, and to all who came last night to support our art, community, and local businesses.

I love the rich pink shades. You've inpired me to get out of my blue/green rut. Not that it's a rut, but I've felt comfortable with it this month. Various shades of Pink is it for my Feb. journal pages! Thanks Aimee! OH, and big CONGRATULATIONS on your art show! Bravo, Bravo!

congratulations on the show, aimee! sometimes, i start up one ladder only to switch to another one half way up ;). it's a bit risky, but usually worth it. happy sunday.

I'd like to pick your brain sometime. It's amazing (^_^)

Anairam said...

Yep, that's the thing to do! Because what else is a ladder good for? Also, that way you can avoid the snakes ...

I call your art," Word Art Inspiration" It's just a wonderful shot in the creative arm!!!! I just love the thought behind it and the whimsy and let not even start talking about all that delicious color! YUMMY! great job.

joanne said...

well how could any show with your art be anything but a raging success :) ... congratulations!!!!! (are there pictures to share????)

i love the colors and the words...now if i could just get over the feeling that the ladders i seem to choose usually have a few questionable rungs at the top...

What a great idea for a show. I like your blog a lot and I've been looking back through your posts. I'll be back to visit.

Congrats - I knew it would be a great opening. photos, please!

ladder climbing sounds like a good idea. No matter which you take you're going up up up. Not backwards.

I would climb the one that has both ice cream AND shoes! How fabulous!
