On Saturday I had the opportunity to go see the artist Wayne Thiebaud speak at the Springville Museum of Art. Thiebaud is a famous artist most often associated with the Pop art movement. It was very interesting to hear him speak. He told stories about working with artist like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. So cool! I liked how he seemed like a normal guy who was really grateful to get to do art. I personally enjoy his work.

A touch of Spring!

Thanks sister for the paper flowers. A nice touch of spring!

Deer in the headlights!

I had a first for me this weekend. My friend Jennie was in town visiting for the weekend. We were on our way to the cabin for a sleepover and of course snowshoeing! We were driving up on Friday night and just after we turned off the main highway on the Sundance road ... we hit a deer! For how many times I have driven that canyon between the cabin and working at Sundance I had never hit a deer! It was crazy! It happened to so fast. Lucky for us the deer hit the front right bumper and not head on. I guess we were pretty lucky that not only did nothing happen to us but nothing happened to Jennie's rental car. Hopefully this first will be my last and only! Very exciting!

Did anyone watch last Wednesday's Oprah about Freegans? It was so eyeopening! I was shocked at how much food was thrown out at grocery stores. My big question is why do they not give all that food to homeless shelters? I would totally go on one of those garbage tours that they showed. I started looking around my house and was disgusted with how much I, one person, consumes! It is time for a change!
