Painting, cleaning up the studio, hanging new work, and gardening (trying to time the crocosmia to bloom Saturday!). This weekend is the annual Rock River Artists Open Studio Tour.
Teeny/Tiny and Polly helping me plant the new rock garden.
Working in the new studio.
Zuzu pleading with me to be allowed to stay in the studio this time. Sorry Zues the answer is still no!
Hazel is part of a solo exhibit I am having at Southern Vermont Arts Center beginning with an opening reception tomorrow, Saturday June 20th from 2-4pm. The exhibit runs until August 2nd. If you are in the area, please stop by to see it. For hours and directions, here is their website http://www.svac.org/
I was thinking about all the great conversations that went on here Saturday and Sunday. A sample of some of the discussions and what I learned – how to remove a raccoon family nested in your chimney using 80’s heavy metal music, that inukshuks are the name for the stone sculptures I always admire, brown pigs with long snouts are Tamworth pigs, a feral kitty showing up at a screen door insisting on taking up residence and becoming best friends with a Yorkie and how some folks can end up with 77 “pet” chickens (I only have four!). I love all the stories and seeing everyone. Two more open studios here this year, July 18 – 19th and October 3-4. Please visit if you can.
