This month and next month promise to be VERY busy.
The Jasper Arts annual juried show wrapped up on Friday. I had my painting Homage to a Dead Bird in it. Have to pick it up this week.
And my solo exhibit at Oakland City University was supposed to end last Friday, too. However, I’ve been asked to extend it for a few more weeks so if you didn’t catch it, you still can through October 12th. The fifty works in the show are a good example of what I’ve been creating the past few years and are pretty colorful.
My class on Flower Painting with Watercolor and Pen and Ink begins tomorrow. I’m a little nervous since I haven’t taught a class in years. But I’ve been painting watercolor for 35 years now and have painted hundreds of flowers so I’m sure I’ll relax. I hope the students have a good time and learn something.
Then on October 11th, I’ve been asked to exhibit some of my work at one of the final Will Read and Sing for Food events. I’m so flattered to be asked. This is a very worthy group of volunteers who have been raising money for worthy causes for the past several years. Music, singing, comedy, humor, editorials. All in good fun. I’ll be sad to see them end their rein but understand exactly how much work is involved behind the scenes for a two hour show. Thanks, friends!
Finally, I’m hosting an Open Studio Sale on October 20 and 21. I haven’t had an open studio sale for four years and have a LOT of paintings for sale at some really great prices just in time for the holidays. Two fun-filled days with art, music, food (homemade minestrone soup and homemade bread), and good friends. Plus it’s a great time to drive out in the country to see the fall colors.
In between all these activities, there’s company coming, fall gardening activities, a wedding and other events to attend, and so much more. Whew! I thought I retired!
If you’d like any more information about any or all of these events, please contact me. I sent out a bunch of invitations to the Open Studio Sale but if you didn’t receive one, just ask.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
