Nope, not running a workshop, attending one. Late October will be another Claudia Jean McCabe festival. That’s a vacation for me. I’d rather spend a week painting with Claudia and all the artists who attend than go to some Caribbean beach. (A Caribbean beach with paint and Claudia… hmm, that sounds good, too.)
I have seven paintings up at the current SGI Headwaters show. One of my pieces has been awarded a Jurors’ Choice which is very cool and makes me quite happy. It’s nice to get feedback like that. I will post that picture in the next blog entry.
I hang out with my paintings for most of the exhibition because I like to talk to people and find out what they think. Additionally, I like to stop people from walking away too soon. My work needs a few minutes to sink in. A strolling viewer offering a passing glance doesn’t always allow the piece time to exude its subtle charm. So I make a bit of small talk and let the work lasso a larger share of attention. We are a bit crafty.
