100 Artists and the Ukelele

We’ve been away for a few days…more on that tomorrow.  Today, though, was a Salem day.  Did I tell you I started playing the Ukelele?  Really…too much fun..Sharon and Carol and I go to class at 8:00 a.m….practically the middle of the night for some of us…(me mostly)…Carol has a cute red uke she got in Hawaii:

but Sharon and I have the more sedate “Travelers”…

and we just rock out…and then have to go have some coffee to get through the rest of the day.

I didn’t take my camera on my bike ride today, but I DID take it along to the opening of “The Art of Communication”…the tenth annual (and last, alas) 100 Artists show at the Mary Lou Zeek Gallery.  It was so crowded I couldn’t get a shot of any of the art, but will go back this week and take a photo of my favorites…here’s what it looked like at about 5:15 tonight…(and note…it’s a little bit LIGHT outside!!)

and here;s Mary Lou herself…in her element!

You’ve got a month to get down there and take a look!


  1. Ukeleles? Is pot legal in the capital city, now? What has come over you guys? How wonderful. The quintessential renaissance woman. Painting, quilting, culinary, and now ukelele music. I can see you on “America’s Got Talent”. A real crowd favorite.
    Put me on the CD release list.

  2. Bonnie,

    What a hoot! I’m learning to play the uke as well–great minds? After I finish working at the Capitol this month maybe I could take lessons with you?

    Would you call me when you have time? 503-986-1861


  3. Looks like you were reading an article about that supposed DaVinci portrait? Read and I watched a special about it on NOVA.

    Your ukelele is the cutest.

  4. And so, do you tune your uke to “My dog has fleas”?

    “If you like ukulele lady, ukulele lady like-a you!” — lyrics to a great hapa-haole ukulele tune.
