Painting, Deadlines, & Shows

I've been chained in my studio trying to get work done for the deadlines fast approaching! Right now I am working on a painting on polymin to submit to MASF. That deadline is on October 9th, so that means the work needs to be out the door by the 5th or 6th, which is really close! The new work is another from my miniature Italian landscape series. I also just finished one (also an Italian landscape) on gessobord that is ready for the isolation coat and varnish. Besides those two, I also have a graphite on film piece that is in the works, but not quite finished. So you see, not much time for blogging, unfortunately. I also miss reading and seeing all the new work my blogger friends are doing. I know you all are doing wonderful work and can't wait to see them!

A reminder, this Friday is the Artists and Patrons Preview from 7 to 9pm with an Awards Ceremony at 7:30 at the Mountlake Terrace Show. I'll be attending.

Also, I've been asked to participate in a show with small works and miniatures at a local community college. More details on that later, so stay tuned.

I also have a few photos for the Elder Street Gallery, It's a Small World Exhibit in Houston and what my daughter thought of the show! (She loved it!) She sent them in an email, so I'll be sorting them and posting real soon.

Congratulations on your award, Barbara. It is more than deserved. Can't wait to see the pieces you are doing for this next show; the peek looks lovely.

You'll have to let me clean up the IM's I sent you that night before you post them on your blog this time. I had just gotten back to the hotel and was trying to get the dogs fed, walked and then change and go find a place for dinner. My typing, spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation were all TERRIBLE to say the least. :)

Thanks Autumn. I'm enjoying painting the new one, just hope I can get it done in time and don't run into any problems!

Gina, Don't worry, they were IM's after all and you were excited. I'm just so happy that you went and enjoyed the show! It was great you sent your impressions. Thanks again! : )
