Here is the start -
No, not much to look at now. But I have to recall the adventures of past years and know that here lies MUCH potential.
Yes, the laptop came out to keep me company. The French Open tennis matches are streamed live from Roland Garros. I don't know if R2-D2 cares, but I do like to listen. (Doesn't everyone have an almost life-sized robot in the backyard? Well, we do.
Now it's back to prepping for the Rivertown Art Festival here in Stillwater, MN. It's this coming May 30 -31, so of course today's 80 degrees will fall back into the 60s. Our location will be on the grass this year, in Booth 62. We plan to have a few new pastel originals as well as new greeting card designs. It's hard to cull the designs each year as we have to bring the "classics'"but certain of the others - well, they can be "perfect" for particular situations. And then an artist is expected to create NEW work as well. Plus do the laundry, dishes, and perhaps make the bed, too!
We've been happy to be juried into a couple new shows (for us). June 14th, yes, a Sunday, will find us in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and on June 20th we will be joining folks in Baraboo, Wisconsin for a new show - ArtJune. Then we head north to the lovely Park Point Art Fair in Duluth, MN - June 27 28. The previous two years we were showing at Spring Green, Wisconsin, so it will be fun to catch up with the doings of friends exhibiting at Park Point. We will also hope that this year's show doesn't include another "exciting" hail storm. We got to watch the action on YouTube while down at Spring Green. Not as much fun when one is trying to protect one's art and booth from the messing arounds of Mother Nature!
Our adventures in oil painting continue - A new dancing bear is making it's way on to a 24' x 12" canvas:
No, I have NO idea where this piece is heading. It's the result (so far) of trying to use up some drying oil paint. Better drying on the canvas than on the palette!
Now, time to quit typing and back to the reality of too many tasks for too short a time. Yes, I know - Live In The Moment. Breathe in breathe out. Breathe in again.
On to a spot of tea and a considering of the duties of the next two hours.
