A Family Reunion

Visited with my cousins down in Maryland over the weekend.  It was a time for looking towards the future and the past.  It seems I was a catalyst to inspire the the gathering of the younger generation and it was great to reconnect with family!  (However these pictures convinced me to go back on WeightWatchers ;-)
On Saturday we had a family gathering with lots of children and grandchildren at Susan's house:

On Sunday we visited with Laurel and went through our maternal grandmother Dornback's photo album (ca 1900 - 1950).  It was poignant to look back on the hard times our family went through and joyful to see the energy of the newest generation.

My studio mates and I hosted a pop-up gallery for the Choose Cohoes Open Studios event last weekend. It was great to have a chance to show off my work and meet a bunch of interesting people.
