aanii!  Well hey here it is Monday, last week of August, nearing the end of another summer…  that could be the blues.  But I’m going to drive my blues away, get in my car and drive on over to Ottawa to attend the 2nd Indigenous Adoptee Gathering.  I went to the first one last September and told the organizers:  we need some art making activities at these gatherings.  Well.  Here we go, to facilitate some art making tomorrow and on Wednesday.

I had planned on the mask but unfortunately for all of us, the art supply company couldn’t ship them.  I ordered them ages ago and was sure they would be here last Monday but no dice.  So instead we are going to try some acrylic on canvas board painting and I can tell you for certain, that is going to be just as fun!

But before we drive over to Ottawa I have to drive out to the town of Kagawong and pick up my art show, coming out of the 4e gallery today!  It’s been in there since late June and I do know we are light a few pieces, and that’s a good thing.

So we have ourselves a heavy duty 24 to 36 hours on the schedule!  Good thing I’ve practiced staying awake for 48 hours as we’re going to need that skill on a day like today.
