It's an unusual Saturday and Sunday at COREY&CO. Three Portland painters cleaning out studios and selling at remarkably reduced prices. Lynn Krauss, Ronnie Wilson and Barbara Corey (me) have turned the shop into a pop-up gallery. We have been crazy-busy with people wanting artwork and deals. Take a look.

Melinda and I have been discussing a dress/ dress plus coat for an upcoming event. Ordinarily, I do not do requests- it makes me too nervous and caged-feeling. But, because Melinda is a very avant-garde dresser, I thought it might be fun.......and so, I bought fabric. And then- Melinda went to D.C. for the weekend-the snow weekend. She is deep in snow. Here are some of the drawings for the 'project'.

I just returned from a few days in New York. I hunted for (and found) new things for the shop and my husband, a bookseller, searched for (and found) first editions. I included a fabric-dive at Mood - 3 floors of choice and a respite from the frigid winds of the city. It's always fun when the box of fabric arrives in Portland and I can start to plan its garment future. I am so lucky to have good people to mind the shop while I am briefly away and have them share in this adventure.
