Wow this summer has flown by. Other than a few Imagination Uncorked classes, I haven't arted much lately. Busy with gardening, yardwork (including digging out stumps - fun times!), battling with unwanted critters, and other such summer tasks. But a few things are starting to get my art mojo stirring again.
I had new art-related experience last weekend: I was one of six jurors at this year's Art & Apples festival in Rochester MI! The festival is put on by the Paint Creek Center for the Arts (PCCA). There were 276 artists, it took me over 5 hours to go through them all, and I was completely awed by all the wonderful creations I got to see. A few days later I learned that some of my top picks ended up winning awards, so I must not have done too bad a job at this jurying thing.
Today I got PCCA's September newsletter, featuring me as their Art Market artist of the month. I am so honored and grateful to have my work showcased by this organization.
Later this month, I'll be participating in Imlay City's Art in the Rough again. I don't know my location yet, but based on last year's event, I know it will be a fun time. Details to come.
Then in October, we'll be painting a haunted house.
In the mean time, I'm crocheting pumpkins.
