I am the co-chair of the Skylands Juried Art Show and have been for the past two years. This year however, the show was planned with adequate time to properly plan it and thus it has taken a bit of a toll on my personal/studio time over the past couple of weeks. I spent most of this week designing the 32- page program and poster. It took much longer than anticipated.
It is finally completed and despite the frustration and interruption to my schedule, I managed to get a lot of my own work done this week. No, I haven't been disciplined with my Coffee Hour Drawings, but I got to a lot of goals that have been on my to-do list for weeks.
- I sold a painting to a new customer through the assistance of my new "matchmaker". I will go into this in a later post.
- I completed and shipped a set of four painted coasters to customers in Colorado. (Top right image - Bakery Display)
- I framed three recently painted tiles for my friend's daughter's nursery. (Next three images - Pecora sul Roma, Pecore in Toscana, Pecore in Corinaldo)
- I ordered supplies for new paintings and lessons.
- I took on a fifth student for lessons.
- I contacted prospective customers about work.
- I went to an opening in Milford, PA to celebrate the first publication of BUZZ, a regional arts directory
- I designed a banner for display in my tent at outdoor art fairs in May.
- I started a painting of Newton's historic downtown.
- I paid bills -- blah.
