Two Dog Pond . . .

What a great day!

I got to spend yesterday on the gravel lane with Rachel http://twodogpond.blogspot.com/ where Life is Good. Yes, there really is a pond and two dogs. The pond is slowly thawing and it won't be long before the big bluestem grass is tall and the bullfrogs are noisy.  



Dog Number One, big old Rumple here has one blue eye and one brown eye and is just happy as all getout to have a guest at Two Dog Pond, can't you tell?  ('Will you get that dang camera out of my face, woman?') You can barely make out Scootch's black butt next to Rumple. Yep, two dogs.

Oh yes, it was a marvelous day on the edge of the Nebraska Prairie yesterday.  It's been so unseasonably warm with temperatures in the high 60's that you just HAVE to stay outside as long as possible.  We drove into town and had lunch at the Corner Cafe, talked about everything from website to new work and the directions we both want to take our art.  It's so wonderful to have a friend you can bounce these ideas off of and I came home majorly energized.  I could hardly sleep last night for thinking of things!

And the truth?  Here's what I love about visiting another artist's studio:

It's a mess, isn't it?  Whew!  That means I'm normal!

That was an EXCELLENT day, thank you,::Lynnie:: I am motivated (and just as messy as ever).
Come on out Miss Lisa! You can rifle through the crap on my desk anytime.
I still think one of you should take the roosters home with you...

*jealous* of your day together! I bet the ideas and energy between the two could have lit up half of seward county for the rest of the week!

I'm with Leah and Lisa. I'm envious of your day together and I clicked on the picture of her messy desk to look closer to see if some talent might rub off on me!
