Hello Little Blog!
I haven’t been posting to you, because I haven’t been making much! The last 2 weeks have been a whirl of activity, the biggest of which was my husband playing a concerto with the Redlands Symphony Orchestra last Saturday and Sunday. (He played magnificently!) I also went to all the rehearsals that week to provide him with honest ears (and also enjoy hearing the rehearsals – the orchestra really was into the piece, so they played with great enthusiasm).
We did, however, manage to squeeze Halloween in somehow:
Please note that my pumpkin is not your ordinary face!
So, many of the other blogs I read have every day stuff woven into their blog. I enjoy reading those blogs, because it helps keep the art in context. The odd thing about that is when I do actually meet the blogger face to face, I have such insight into their lives, I have a hard time figuring out whether or not to use that info as we talk – it’s a little weird.
Anyway, this is a round about way of saying that I probably won’t be one of those bloggers – if I can’t show off what I’m making, I’d rather be MAKING it than blogging about something else. And of course, I will probably not always follow this guideline!
That being said, I’ve been doing a bunch of art business type stuff and recovering from a cold. My next show is a small one, where I am one of the organizers. We donate 20% of our profits to a local charity – this year it’s a free dental clinic run by the Assistance League of Redlands. This summer I took the pictures, designed the postcard and had it printed at Vista Print. Today was spent sprucing mu my mailing list, printing off 120 labels and sticking them all to postcards! Now it’s full court press to make things for this show!
