STOLEN ART ALERT – LISA KURT’S YETI PAINTING Virginia City, NV

From a friend who had her painting stolen up in Virginia City!!!!
LISA KURT, ARTIST IN RESIDENCE AT ST. MARY’S ART CENTER.

STOLEN PAINTING ALERT- Please Share!! I’m stunned and shaken to report that I’ve had yet another painting stolen in Northern Nevada. This time one of my paintings from my picture book project show at St. Mary’s St Marys Art Center in Virginia City, NV was taken sometime this last week between 4/25/2015 -4/30/2015. I wasn’t selling these pieces because they are part of my picture book artwork that I’ve been working on to get published. This is the second theft of my work in less than 4 months in Nevada. The Cosmonaut 64 painting has yet to be returned. **Please refrain from telling me this is a compliment or that I should be flattered- this is theft of my livelihood and personal property and it is unacceptable.
Please share this widely and help me get it returned. I just want the painting back- no questions asked.

A Monday Ramble ~ 18 March 2013

Just a few rambles for this March Monday ~ 18 March 2013

I decided to finish my Denyse Schmidt quilt I started a month ago. Started out with a pile of charms I received from a Denyse Schmidt Charm Swap and with a few cuts from my own stash I went from this:

To a 60″x72″ quilt top ready to be sandwiched, quilted and bound.

But first I must wait to spring my new machine out of layaway prison (should anyone have any money burning a hole in their pocket…she’s sitting at Windy Moon Quilts! 😉 ).

Last week on Facebook I saw this MEYER LEMON LOAF recipe on Mennonite Girls Can Cook.

Oh My Word! It’s very tasty! My husband and I have almost polished off one loaf…I stuck the other on in the freezer.

My loaf isn’t as pretty as theirs…the pan I used was a bit bigger than what they suggested. Use the smaller loaf pan, it’ll look bigger. LOL!

Over the weekend we went to SWAN LAKE, in Lemmon Valley, to see if we could spy any birds. I walked along the Marsh boardwalk, but it was sorta of disappointing. Besides the sparrows and finches…we saw Mallards, Northern Harriers and Canada Geese. That’s it. I’ve been there before when there were quite a few swans and other water fowl.
