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 overstatement...only 13.  But one is a newly minted, very mobile two year 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!
