Sounds like we are going to Vancouver Washington for our next summit. That
will also include Portland Oregon. For those who do not know the area the 2
states are divided by the Columbia River and Vancouver is almost part of the
city of Portland, only across the river, in Washington.
We have a boat moored on the river and I could house a few there with me.
The husband thinks he would not come down so I have a v- berth for one
person and a small pullout double bed in the salon. So it would be 2 or at
most 3 and I have a PT Cruiser to drive a few around.
Summer would be the best time of year in the pacific northwest.
Sharri keep smiling and please keep your generous offer open. There are
many around who will help, it will be a memorable event! We did not discuss
politics at the last summit, so I doubt we will at this one. I think we
made a lot of friendships that will be strengthened by seeing each other

Hello All you enthusiastic printmakers -

Firstly - thank you to April Vollmer for the link to the Union College show
- it was a great pleasure to view everyone's work! and as always I enjoy
all the technical exchanges - as for political innuendos -for heaven's sake
can't the humour carry the day?! I think that as a Canadian I could say a
lot more but will desist - I already suffered a strange comment from
someone who criticized my mentioning
an excellent TV series on ART (why?)

Secondly - (I wonder if this is in the OED? - interestingly enough my spell
check didn't underline these words) - I would absolutely love to come to a
Summit at Sharri's and meet all you fascinating and prodigious West Coast
printmakers. (It would be great to see you again Michelle if you could
'pop' down from Juneau. ) I visited Vancouver (Canada) for the first time
last summer and went up to Alaska -was enthralled by it all and am keen to
see more of the West Coast - I could possibly co-ordinate the Baren meeting
with another trip to see my cousins and friends in Vancouver- is Vancouver
U.S.A. fairly close? As I still remain a fairly impoverished artist,
raising the air fare out West is a major undertaking and I would have to
take advantage of someone's offer of accommodation while there - it would
be great to see practicioners of 'moku hanga' at work before I get involved
as I haven't taken the plunge yet and am still doing western style woodblocks -
Louise Cass

P.S. All the roosters so far are really splendid and my prizewinning
Ontario one is on his way! Have also got the rest of my 2004 monkeys ready
to go - how about you 13 or 14 other laggards - where are you?!

Marilynn - I hope you read this far - I'd happily take you up on the offer
of a berth on your boat - from all of your accounts it would be fabulous to
be able to sketch where you're situated - could we correspond off line?

300 miles or a 5 hour drive if you don't hit bad traffic or have to stop a lot.....they are on opposite ends of the state, Vancouver BC is 30 miles N or Washington and Vancouver USA is so close to Oregon as to be in the back yard, a sentiment that Vancouvef USA people hate. They naturally do not want to be thought of as a bedroom community for Portland and with all the industry and tax advantages of Washington (no state income tax and way lower property taxes) it is not so, as it was in the past. I do think people in Washington who have a high sales tax run over to Oregon to do a lot of shopping, though.

They also pump their own gas in Oregon it is against the law to pump it yourself. Soooo, I was in Washington and needed gas....I couldn't figure out how to get the gas cap off and there is no one to help, just a young lady taking I had to get back in my van and drive to Oregon, where I made them show me how to take the cap off. It still embarasses me to think I was so stupid....but after almost 40 years of having someone else pump the gas, I had no idea! Of course it means we never arrive at a meeting or party smelling like gas instead of flowers.

My computer has died...I am in trouble. Good thing my email is on the server...rats. I think I will take it out into the yard and beat it to death with a hammer.

6 sided hide hut, native originally to Mongolia, made in wood in Oregon. It is a permanent structure with kitchen or bathroom. Sort of like a free standing bedroom.

Originally made with felt place over a light wooden frame, sort of like a
flat top tipi ... very mobile ... extremely cheap ... suited to nomads with
sheep ... was a fellow from the old USSR making them here locally from felt
(Victoria, B.C.) ... have not seen one in a while, though.

Cheers .... Charles

Hi there:

My wife and I were looking into yerts a few months ago
and found this link

Pacific Yurts makes a high quality product and may
just be the ticket for artist/printmakers wanting
studio space.

Send Message: To this poster

Barbara and Sherri,
sorry for not answering up earlier concerning the up coming 2006 Baren Forum Northwest! I accept the position as one of the Northwest coordinating team members. If it's held during the summer, I'll also volunteer to shuttle folks from the airport to Vancouver if needed? I just think it's a great opportunity for us to have a tremendous amount of fun and education. You guys NEED to see our coast and have some crab or steelhead. Its heaven!
Yes, Count me in!
And Barbara, Thanks for the weekend Solar plate workshop.
