mile high rainbow cake
(ok, it was only 10" high but it almost didn't fit on the plates!)
Yesterday Sage turned nine. He spent his birthday with a few friends at an amazing leather mask making studio in the city. The couple that owns and operates the studio were open and generous with their time, talents and materials and each of the boys walked away with a really amazing and unique piece of wearable art. If you ever find yourself in need of a mask definitely check out Jeff and Colleen's work at the 'Inside Out Art Studio'. After all of the excitement of the day everyone was quietly playing with new things or working on homework or reading the paper and I was able to get a little painting in. I started two pieces very similar in color and feel and I'm looking forward to seeing where they take me this afternoon. I've also started laying out some bits and pieces for a few more mermaid paintings. The first three mermaids have all found their way closer to the sea and one even journeyed across it as she made her way out into the big wide world.
