It's been a long, long stretch of not posting, and I apologize! Thanks to all who wrote to make sure I was OK.
I am! It's just been busy here beyond imagining.
I spent a lot of time getting ready for the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival, and then, of course, working hard at the festival. The first day, a brilliant and sunny day, one painting sold. It was bought by a couple from Rhode Island, delightful people who are collecting my work, and I could not be happier that they came to the show and bought another painting! I love knowing that as they walk through their house, they see my paintings, day in and day out. I know my paintings make them happy, and knowing that makes me happy.
The second day, it poured. Poured and poured and poured, and all around me, artists packed up and left. But I had committed for two days - that's what you do when you get into these shows - and so I stayed. And much to my delighted surprise, six more paintings sold. I had a lovely, if wet, day, met a bunch of very, very nice people, and again, several pieces were bought by one delightful collector. What a thrill!
After shows, I rest a little. There's a letdown - and true, bone deep fatigue. So I laid low for a day or two, then started painting, this large and bright sunflower piece, one that I hope will be part of a display soon at Center Framing and Art in West Hartford Center.
And then, the hurricane hit. And I wrote and wrote and wrote and wrote, filling the Montville Patch with news and stories and photos and videos. I believe I wrote 53 stories between the Friday before the hurricane hit and the following Friday, when the power (mostly) came back on.
And then - surprise! - I had another show. I got into it just before it began, and honestly, up until about a day before it started, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get the garage door up to get my stuff out, because of the power situation here.
But the power came on, the door opened and the show went well. Three paintings sold, I worked hard, I met incredibly nice people who were so happy to be away from tropical storms and hurricanes and power outages that they were overjoyed to look at art.
So I am back, and painting, and looking forward to whatever's coming next!
