It's been a hectic week to say the least, and tonight I teach my continuing ed class. I have a fun, easy lesson planned, using masking tape as a resist so we can work on watercolor washes and layering color yet keeping it transparent. I spent most of the day loading my car and packing up everything for the 3 day show (actually I spent most of last night not sleeping, trying to plan out in my mind what I needed so loading today would be easier). My body of work has changed since last year and I am bringing more encaustics and less watercolor paintings; landscape as a subject matter will be the bond that ties these two different mediums together with my "Pathways and Transitions" series making it's debut.
I hit the road in the morning, driving to the western part of the state where I will have the day to setup my booth, the show opens Saturday at 10am. The weather is perfect, finally, and this is a peak weekend for New England autumn foliage viewing.
There has been excellent PR for the show (a reason I love doing it) and people always come to look, whether they decide to shop or not is another question! If I am lucky, a few of my loyal patrons will come see me even if it's just to say hello.
