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.)
Headwaters Arts 2011Artwork
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.
