I'm at the mercy of the weatherman!

Providence Clouds
In preparation for my first outdoor exhibit, I've postponed much of the work waiting for a 7 day weather forecast.  Just this once, I really, really, really hope they get it right.  Predictions are for a mostly sunny day in the upper 70's - just perfect. 

Now for a week of finishing a few more paintings, framing many more paintings, assembling my display board, and figuring out how I'm going to get it all there.  I'm so excited, though!

I could...

I'm a big fan of great design.  These folks have some innovative, as well as humorous, products and proposals.  
At artisan type fairs, I often find myself thinking "Why didn't I think of that"  or the ever popular "I can make that."  The response is:  "I didn't" or "I don't."  A few years back, I was laid off and finally took action on the "I can make that" list.  
I hope it doesn't take losing your job to jump start your creativity.
