New challenges

Today has been fun. I received 2 custom orders this morning and as a result I played with some new color combinations in order to match the customer's wall color without totally blending in. I also finished discovering and loving a new blue/brown color scheme.The embellishments arrived today for my Christmas signs so I will be spend the afternoon figuring out just where I want them. My helper Jack is thoroughly bored with all of it.... Be creative :o)

It's Christmas time...

Scared you with that title didn't I? Well it is Christmas time at Studio 7 as I am beginning my Christmas signs today. The kids are back to school and I have 3 Fall shows coming up and folks are going to be expecting Christmas items. I opened an Etsy shop yesterday and that is going well so far.
Be creative...

Not done yet...

I thought I was taking a break before this weekend's show but I was wrong. As I sold a few pieces that I had planned on taking to the show I had to make some more. Pure torture right? Now I want to make a dozen more :o)As an aside: This day in history August 15, 1969: The Woodstock Music and Art Fair opened in upstate New York.Have fun today and be creative!

Is it Sunday yet?

Super excited for this Sunday's Avant-Garde Art Show. I will have the privilege of being surrounded by more than 125 gifted artists. I have worked hard for this and have enjoyed every minute. Being the OCD queen that I am, everything is already packed and ready. My fingers are itching to create some more however, as this is the last full week of summer vacation I plan to spend some quality time with my mini-me. Peace...

Not enough hours in the day

It's been more than a few days since my last post. My husband was actually home for 4 solid days and we had a full calendar including seeing Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan on Sunday night. Today after catching up on housework I found some time to experiment with new color combinations and I am really happy with the results. 8 new pieces in the works and 4 shows coming up. Life is good... Peace.

Like a kid at Christmas

I made a trek to Columbus today and boy did I stock up at my favorite store Dick Blick. 62 canvasses and 19 tubes of paint. Now I think my head is going to spin off of my shoulders as I want to attack all the canvasses at once ;o)
