RAPTURE hosted the Portland Art Collective on Monday night. It didn't rain during our party, but it wasn't very warm, so most of our evening was spent huddled in the cabin, But we are all very good huddlers and had a great time, even if at times people were trolling and waiting for someone to stand up so they could grab their seat!
I am a woman trying to navigate being 50-something, to not dwell too much on getting older, and reminding myself constantly to live in the moment. I am a woman who loves books, reading, and used bookstores (especially Powell's in downtown Portland). I am a woman who is discovering art after years of raising kids, working, and going to school. I am a woman who loves collage, painting, mixed media, and assemblage. I am a woman who loves gunkholing in junk stores and picking trash up off the street just for the thrill of its possibilities. I am a woman who has a mantra to BE BOLD.
