It has been an exceptionally busy time the past few weeks, leaving little time to paint. I was readying for Open Studios, which was last weekend. Here is a pic of a portion of the stuio. A very successful event, many people and best of all sales.Then there was preparation for Thanksgiving, 12 in all, small this year, but nice family get together. I am a total slug today. I hope to do some work in December, but probably not a lot until the new year.
Being thankful for all the wonderful blessings.

something different

Finally got back here. This is a busy time geting ready for Open Studios. We are doing our fundraiser again this year. Everyone who wants to participate is given a 5 x 7 piece of paper to do whatever they want on it. The group mats it, puts it in a plastic bag and it is sold for $25 and 10% of the proceeds goes to a local charity in town. Last year was okay, but we are hoping to do better this year. Here is my piece, 5 x 7 on 300lbWC paper, goauche as a medium. It was fun to do.
