Art Show and Apres
We had our art show on August 9th. Thanks to everyone that came. We had a really great turn out. It was really fun and really tiring. I've forgotten how much work it is to put on a show. Throw a car accident and a framing mishap into the mix and it makes for a very crazy time. I'm going to keep painting Plein Air but I feel less pressure to create work. I'm also going to be turning my focus on my greeting card illustrations for a while. I was working a lot on Greeting cards until I joined the Plein Air club, which was a nice distraction. I meet with my Mentor Cheryl Phelps (gift ware industry master) in October. I have a lot of work to do before then. I had nothing to do tonight, no framing, no freelance work, no gatherings to go to. It was weird, and the calm was almost nerve racking. I was thinking "what should I be doing" all night. It's hard to go go go and then stop it's like your body and mind still want to go, but there is no where to go.
