Some serious construction is underway at Hand & Soul Studios as I work towards an October art show entitled "Facades." I've completed 12 of these little houses mounted on 5 by 5-inch stretched canvases along with 2, 10 by 30-inch night 'scapes, one 15 by 30-inch red, black and white town scene, and one countryside scene. Whew! It isn't nearly enough but I'm pluggin' along, "building" up my inventory one house at a time. The show venue is huge and I may actually hang two completely different shows at this one...just depends on how much art I can crank out. I'm almost finished with the work for a September/October show entitled "Soul Terrain." I have another show to hang in November/December and I'm calling that one "A Post-Fusion Retrospective" as it is at my physical therapists' office...again another huge venue. Luckily, I'll be able to use any work from the first two shows that doesn't sell as well as any other art I've completed since my wrist fusion in March of 2008.
In between show stuff, I'm researching artists and creating samples for my classes starting in September when the new school year kicks off. Oh, and I'm hosting two major swaps AND trying to write/produce an online art journaling class that will go live in January! I think I'm going to need stock in a coffee company! How did I ever get this busy?! Thank you for all of your sweet comments and dedicated following of this thing I call my art life! Things are about to get crazy, ladies and gents!
