Another double dip from my takeover, another amazing road trip, another amazing find. Our day at the Portland Saturday Market in Portland, Oregon was near the tail end of a 17 day trip that took us from hiking canyons and national parks to strolling San Francisco and Seattle.

When we found Sarah Bolerjack’s booth we all admired her work, and I believe, all walked away with some. It had tiny details, moons, stars, twisty trees, and , of course, cats. All the elements that can potentially draw me in. This would have been one of those times in life when I had to choose wisely and operate within my means as far as art purchases. I don’t remember exactly how it went down. I imagine that I had been verbally debating which print and whether or not I could afford multiple prints when Sarah intervened. She offered to trade her prints for the earrings I was wearing. They were my favorite at the time. I had made them out of carved bone butterflies and peach aventurine. There was some hesitation on my part, but not much.
