My brother from New Mexico and two of his compadres from Texas joined myself and a second brother here in Oregon, and about 17 more family and friends, for our much anticipated time on the coast. We had an amazing week…having rented 5 condos right on the ocean. The weather was absolutely perfect the entire week.
It was like a progressive party, every day and every evening…wandering from one unit to another…always something going on…somewhere. Before we left for the coast, brother & friends from the south did an exquisite corpse drawing…
and a second collaborative drawing…both of which we engraved on the Glowforge, using the trace feature.
(The cut edges are a bit wonky…I ended up having to adapt some of their errant lines) They were incredibly impressed, seeing their small drawings transferred in every detail to a piece of maple wood.
Most of their days were spent on the beach shooting videos. Brother bought a huge bunch of light sabers and gave one to everyone that was there. There was no shortage of light. One afternoon, about 7 of us went to our good friends music studio a couple miles away, and played guitars and sang.
(obviously a pano shot)
Left to right; brother Rob, who lives but an hour and half from me, Junius, a friend of my other brother, John (retired prof.of painting from U.of NM. (in the plaid shirt and hat)…and Martin in the mirror…a prof.of video and animation from the U.of Texas. Quite the interesting and fun bunch…and a wildly good time for us all.
