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!
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.
