Mother of Art-in-Progress Party

Time Passes.  The artists get older.  But they have more art.  And some of them have bigger homes.  And are more pregnant.  And make art about that. 
This year's event was held at Irene & Gary's fabulous new home.  It had a fire burning in the fireplace but wasn't too hot.   Miraculous.  Also, this year we were graced with presentations by visiting artists from the east coast (Brad and Damon!), in addition to the Nashville contingent.  Goal for next year:  get Rose to come from far away Valparaiso.   [Is that the right town?]
