The Tunbridge World's Fair

The day I visited the fair was warm and gorgeous. Getting there was a puzzle with all the still-closed roads from Irene damage.The day I visited the fair was warm and gorgeous. Getting there was a puzzle. with all the still-closed roads from Irene damage.

Poor Brandon

I finally took my camera to Brandon, 2 + weeks after Irene roared through and took these sad pictures. 
The little park to the right of route 7 going south.

The mess between 2 buildings a bit north of that park, same side.

The thrift store "parking lot."

The other little park where we often ate pastries...

In the Poconos

I am in a sweet little cabin in the middle of woods and rolling corn fields. I am about to go down to the airy post and beam barn/dining room/lecture hall for breakfast. My favorite speaker, Eric Rohmann, the printmaker is speaking 1st. I'll post a few pics later.
Eric Rohmann talked about character development and printmaking and then we all got an assignment:

We were given a small piece of EZKut and told to draw Herb the Pig, having his picture taken in 1st grade.

Everyone drew Herb and carved him-the variety was stunning. Mine is lower right.

We eat and have lessons in this barn. It is brand new and gorgeous, built inside the foundation of an old barn that forms 2 walls of the back patio area.
