Open Studios Over
This is how the Shoreline ArtsTrail pictured me in their pre-weekend write up. I can tell you that's not how I looked on Sunday evening at the end of the weekend!
Okay, I might have smiled a bunch, having sold five (!) pieces, but I was totally spent. I had moved my studio to the Guilford Art Center, nearer the center of town, along with five other SAT members. Having a 'nest' of artists certainly increases traffic...and, heck, it's fun to talk to your buddies on those few off-times when the studios are empty.
The other equally exciting news is that one of my Color of Place series has been juried into PAQA-South's ArtQuiltsWater! I am so psyched that one of them is going on the road! The exhibit opens in Cary, NC January 4 and is up until March 24. Cary happens to be very near where one of my children lives :^) Goodness, the two of us might be able to attend the Artist reception together. That would be especially nice for this child...he 'gets' what I do and would enjoy it.
Now off to Thanksgiving preparations. We are hosting a cast of thousands...okay...an overstatement...only 13. But one is a newly minted, very mobile two year old...so that makes up for the exaggeration. We are getting the six cousins together, ages 14-2, four from FL and two local. They are all SO excited. (as are their grands). Happy Thanksgiving to all!
