What a whirlwind life has been since returning from Oz! Or maybe that sentence should read something along the lines of the whirlwind begun in Oz followed me home!
Life has been non-stop lately and most of it has been little urchin related. The first week after the artist retreat was spent finishing readying my 5 large rust beauties for jurying for a 2013 solo show at Silvermine Arts Center.
They were ironed and rolled around swimming pool noodles for transporting,
then hung on the wall with the greatest of ease. As I stepped back to observe all that was hung, I thought I had it. I knew I had it. I didn't really though. When the list was published, my name was not on it. Congratulations to those whose names were!
Back in the studio, there are the artist retreat boxes to unpack, canvases to stretch my rusties over,
homework to start for an October workshop as well as
homework to complete from the artist retreat.
And then there's London to plan for too. Thank you to all who suggested places to visit! I'll be wending my way there soon...in 2 weeks, in fact. Yikes! Time to start packing...
