Whew--I've been so busy, I have not been able to post lately. Within the past week, I've taught many very talented second graders at a school in Raleigh--they made wonderful sculptures which we will paint on December 3.
This past weekend was the Whimsical Women show, in Winston-Salem. The show is legendary for its superb organization and incredible food (made by the artists). All of the artists help with some aspect of the show--which gets us out of our booths and, yes, even do some shopping ourselves!
I got to visit with artists who I knew for a while, hadn't seen for a while, or met at the spring show, held in May, in the Chapel Hill area.
Many, many thanks to Luli Sanderford, our hostess, and her sister, Linda Palladino. Also the many other organizers...I'm afraid to name them for fear of leaving someone out--except I have to mention Brenda Moore--who I met through classes at Sawtooth many years ago. She makes exquisite maiolica.
As I write this , I am taking a break from unloading the van.
With the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Show coming right up, I spent some time this morning repainting pedestals. Had repainted the wall panels earlier this week--will take and post a photo if I have any time or energy left. Needless to say, the studio is a sea of white. Once dry enough to handle, we'll arrange all this "furniture" and set up a mock-up booth. Would have like to have done this weeks ago, but too much going on! All good problems!
