getting ready

Getting ready for a little art show this weekend. It's a new addition to a local festival, so it will be interesting to see if anyone comes with a mind to actually buy art. Whether they do or not, I'm looking forward to hanging out and hopefully having some nice conversations. Here's the plan for the walls of the booth:

I love having a chance to see everything hanging nicely in one place. I haven't done this very many times, but I like the feel of 'gallery walls' and tend to arrange with that in mind. I'll have prints and unframed originals available too, as well as a whole table of notecards and stuff. I have a few more pieces to finish up- but should be in good shape by Saturday. Be sure to come check it out if you're a local!



Hi! September's here, and we're all loving the beautiful weather and are adjusting to new routines. So far so good...boys are happy at school and I'm enjoying the structure I've put together for my own days. So far I've got a good balance of household and gardening chores fitting in, a few good workouts per week and some studio time every day.

I just finished this piece for a friend who is making an exciting move:

taking charge

I was thinking about how it feels to just know it's time to do something- to take charge and get going.

In the next few weeks I'll be finishing up a few more small birds for the art fair I'm participating in in early October. I also hit the jackpot several times over at the antique shops last weekend, and have lots of fun material for new notecards and wine tags for the same show. Sounds like I may have enough to pull together more than one post this month- amazing!
