I was too tired from getting ready for the graduation party to complete a small painting today. The party was a great success, but if you're like me, when you get ready for an event like this, you have to make sure that you clean things that haven't been cleaned in years. So I haven't even been in my studio today. The party was great though - all kinds of enchiladas, guacamole, and Nana's homemade sopapillas, yum.

What a day -
I started off with great intentions; meditate, exercise, finish outlining a painting to take for framing and CLEAN MY DIRTY STUDIO. Well, let's just say so far the only thing that has been accomplished was the exercise, mainly because I gave my husband a list of "healthy and fit" things I was going to do every day this week and Go to Curves on Monday was on it.
We're trying to spruce up our house a bit and this morning I dealt with two guys and a big backhoe putting in a new sewer line, four guys doing a much-needed yard clean-up, a lady who came and gave me a ONE HOUR window replacement presentation. ONE HOUR, mind you. I know more about window replacements now than she does. I also took numerous phone calls, went to get gas, the bank, the store. I should never try actually get any work done on Mondays.
So tonight I will work for a bit, then sit down and get ready for the TV show "24", which makes me bite my nails off but I love it anyway. Tomorrow I will make a list of canvases I need for the show, start a new commission and I will send pics of MY CLEAN STUDIO , along with some new things I'm starting to work on.

Well, it's "Getting Ready For Show Time" again!
Which is exciting but also a lot of work.
I have shows in both June and July which means that Daily Paintings will become Weekly Paintings starting this Monday until after July 15.
I have decided to chronicle the entire process of getting ready for these shows on the blogsite, so you can follow and see what's involved from start to finish. This will include everything, from decisions about subject matter to setting up the booth for the shows. I'm hoping to keep you interested with lots of photos and commentary. The "blog diary" starts Sunday, so stay tuned. I appreciate your comments and feedback and if I post a painting for the show and you would like to purchase before the shows, please email me for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
I am also doing a five day plein air Paint-Out this July in Santa Fe with an exhibit at a Santa Fe gallery to follow. I will also blog about that experience, which should be a blast!
I will be sending daily email blogs, so if you would like to be notified when they're complete, please add your name to our email sign-up list.
