Meet Anda Chance. Colored Pencil and Watercolor Artist.
(Click on her name to see her gallery at her website.)
My friend J and I met her at the Artisan’s Guild Gallery in downtown Gainesville, Florida.
“She has earned signature status from the Colored Pencil Society of America in colored pencil and mixed media art.”Here she is with a piece she was bringing into the gallery on Sunday.
This airplane, Warbird, had just been a show near Washington D.C.
This Navy plane was used by the US Navy from WWII to the end of the Vietnam War to train pilots and ground crews. When my husband join the Navy in 1970, he was in the last class of ground crew mechanics taught to maintain this engine. Today, she resides in Douglas Georgia with other retired War Birds.
This drawing was a challenge and it really pushed my skills.
“Warbird” has been accepted for the 2017 Colored Pencil International Show in Bethesda Md.
I bought notecards titled Night Riders, with these amazing bicycles on them.

Meet Zoe Papadopoulou. My wonderful seat mate on flight from Munich to Toronto. You know, I’m an anxious flier so it was lovely to be seated next to someone who loves the adventure and excitement of flying.
She’ll be singing with two other well known Greek singers in a special concert this Friday in Toronto.
We’re checked in a hotel near the airport.
Across the street are seaplanes, moored at the edge of a lake.
They have a distinct sound as they take off and land, Mary said like angry bees. Just the word pontoons seems exotic. They’ll ask your weight if you fly in one.
There are a lot of these planes, all colors.
Farewell Alaska tomorrow.

Not certain that’s a word, deicing,de-icing but before Pittsburgh takeoff, a team sprayed down the plane.
Flying in January can be feel iffy in northern climes.
The beginning of my midwinter break last week. Preparing to leave winter for a lovely warm week, part one. Grateful for the crew who deiced the plane!
at the kiosk. They were out of white milk for cereal and it had been a busy day, she said.
She did tell me where I could get a Greek salad.
Our plane had mechanical problems so I had to switch to another plane. That’s how I ended up talking to her

Than to be in the air, and wish you were on the ground.”
