spring is here

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

I do believe, Spring is here! We've had a few nice days here and there and the snow is finally gone and today we're getting rain showers! Now for some sun and we will all be happy.
I have been painting and creating every living moment of the day and have tried a few new/lighter color palettes of subdues greens, teals, aquas and sand colors. I'm also starting a "pillar" which is 12" square and stands 36" tall and will be covered on all sides with mixed media. I'm busy preparing for my summer show schedule. So far for sure is Wausau Fine Arts Festival in September, Marquette Art on the Rocks in July and Edina Art Fair in June. Edina's art fair will be a new one for me and probably grueling as it is a 3 day show (friday, sat, sun). Edina is a very nice suburb of Minneapolis and should expose me to a whole new customer base, I am very excited! I'm still waiting to hear on the other shows and will let you know as I get responses back.
We didn't take a vacation this year and I dearly missed it. I hear Santa Fe calling - maybe next year. Dave and I are lucky to have wonderful travel companions (my sister Val and her husband Mike) who live in El Paso always meet us somewhere for a long weekend and although I love looking at art more than they do we all share a common love for good food!!!
Back to painting on this rainy day -
