Success is sweet
when you sell a dessert-lover's photo transfer under beeswax titled "Macaron Tower" (Najac, France) at the prestigious Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts. I feel like a million bucks! Despite the venue earning more than I did with their $35 entry fee + 40% commission. My friend Jeannine
's painting won a blue ribbon and $100 prize.
I can create another macaron tower, or enjoy antiqued "Jazz Macarons
" baked by Vibrant Table
. Many thanks to caterer Kurt Beadell for buying my Casa Mila art that I donated to Cascade AIDS Project Art Auction.
Please say a prayer that the City of Seattle buys one of my water themed entries.
I spent Friday with the gorgeous actors on the set of the TV Show, Librarians
. My two friends build their sets. The staff is HUGE. Rebecca Romijn had her makeup retouched every 8-12 minutes, while Noah Wyle's hair was smudged upward every 20 minutes. And yes, I like Christian Kane with short hair (shock!!). Seventy extras sat, waited in eternal silence while cameras rolled for one airport scene that shot from 0730 to 2100 (overtime is de rigueur in this biz).
I cannot figure out WHY actors enjoy a tedious 6-8 hours shooting a 3-minute scene.
