Steve Young in the Tent!
Yep! It was pretty fun looking up and seeing Steve Young in my studio. I recognized him instantly (my hubby was so proud!) He and his wife, Barb, were quite taken with my Aspen series. A commission is in the works for their home being built in Provo, UT. This show attracts a lot of celebs. Last year it was Stephanie Meyer, author of the "Twilight Series." You'll never find a better art show anywhere in the world! Ends on the 25th.

During show hours (10am-6pm) Nikki helped me paint. She got pretty good at laying in the backgrounds. Boy that was nice. I could really use an assistant! Occasionally she would take break to walk around the show, and everyone just assumed she was me. It was pretty comical. I'd forgotten just how similar we look. Even our mannerisms are the same. But that's not all we share in common. We both have 4 children--all the same ages, 5 up to 12. She has 3 girls and a boy, and I have 3 boys and a girl. We were pregnant with our first at the same time and ended up giving birth (Thanksgiving Day) in the same hospital just hours apart! Our Mother went from my birth, straight to Nikki's. The poor exhausted woman! She's been to all of her daughter's births. We just couldn't do it without our Mother! That makes 26 births (two daughters have yet to start their families...so it's 26 and counting!) And she never forgets a birthday. Talk about full time job!
Anyway, sisters really are the best! I'm grateful my parents kept trying for that boy! "Michael" just wasn't meant to be! :) I really loved spending the weekend with my little sis. It was way too short! Every year we all try to get together for a "Sister's Trip." This was kind of like a "Sister's Trip, minus 6!" Okay girls, who's next? Show ends March 25th, so hurry!
