A Few Days Off....

I am in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.  Breckenridge will be my home for the next month as I am Artist-in-Residence at The Tin Shop, the town of Breckenridge's guest artist program.  What a beautiful spot to spend July!  The weather is gorgeous and the wild flowers are in full bloom.  Until I am set up in my new studio/residence, I'm taking a couple of days off.

My sister, artist Joanne Hanson, and I exhibited our work this past weekend at Meet the Artist in downtown Breckenridge where the annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer was happening.  It really is an amazing event where primarily women (but many men are involved) walk for a cure for breast cancer.  The walkers raise money by walking 39 miles for their sisters, mothers, daughters and friends - but they were walking for my mom too as she died of breast cancer. 

The Power of Women!
