College of Charleston trip

I bet you are wondering where I've been!
My youngest is entering into the freshman class at the College of Charleston- we drove down on Tuesday- stopping first at Jane Filers beach house in Oak Island.
It was amazing for me to see her stuff in person- like the first visit I made to the MOMA.
Jane and her husband John are the warmest, friendliest and totally fun people I have met in a long time.
They fed us well and showered us with Southern hospitality. We painted a bit together out on her screen porch ) it was HOT!) and had a bike ride to the ocean and swam,. The water was HOT! Her work inspires me so much- and she let me play with all her colors.
She primed a panel for me and everything! I made kind of a mess but had a blast doing so.
I was just painting what popped out of the canvas- and responding to her piece here.

Here's jane 

We left there in the afternoon and made our way to the college- moving in was extremely chaotic -and it is hot and humid here! but now she's in her dorm.
She won't meet her 3 suite-mates till Saturdays- unfortunately we won't be here to meet them .

Gorgeous campus-
and here is our girl

Bye Mom- I'll miss you! ( ya right)

I will resume the blog when I return on Saturday. Getting close to 365!

She's beautiful, and she's doing the happy dance now... got to pick the best bed/desk in the room! You are amazing. I love the piece you did with Jane. You rock!

I can just hear you and Al singing "I Think We're Alone Now....."
