Here’s what’s happening:
-I just finished up the final drawing for a new commission that got rave reviews from the client. It’s a Christmas present so I don’t know if I’ll be able to show you any of it till next year but I love it. Every time someone comes to me with an idea and then I implement it, it’s like a surprise. “Hey look! That really worked out!” Painting will begin some time when I get back. October is a busy month as I’m about to demonstrate:
~Today I leave for Chapel Hill and poker night
~tomorrow I camp out at Geneva’s
~Jason comes to Chapel Hill for a career fest on Monday in hopes of finding an internship this summer
~The American Massage Therapy Assocation is having their summit in Raliegh, perhaps I will go.
~October 4-7 is Shekori Fest. I will dance and celebrate and give out Thai Massages.
~October 8 I’ll be getting another painting captured, and more prints ordered, I’ll share it with you that week.
~October 11-14 is the WomenSpirit retreat. I just picked up my original Caravan painting from the framing shop. It looks absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to share it with the ladies, and I have 24 prints signed, packaged and ready to sell.
