Well, if the title doesn't give it away, I will. We have been busy as usual here at the gallery. Melinda and I had a weeks worth of Summer Camp with kids ages 3.5 - 14 last week. I have tons of pics to post on here in the next few days as I can. We also got visited by The Best Of Missouri Hands Group who invited and then insisted that Melinda and I join in their fun. Flattering really. They came to visit during the camp...LOL... kids EVERYWHERE... ART even more EVERYWHERE....and they still asked us to join.

It truly is the perfect setting for the Wine Festival
The Wine Festival was Saturday.....two words... FUUUUU UUUUUNNNNN!!!! OMGOODNESS did we drink some wine. I also picked up two more wineries to paint at this fall and winter and sold art to some beautiful people. We had a ball and I am pretty sure Kiko bought 4 or five cases of wine that will put us ahead of the game come Sept 1st when the full schedule of the gallery picks up and takes off again.
|I LOVE this painting.|
I seriously have 72 hours to do 5 paintings, and one of them is a MARLIN . I am pissing blood with nerves over this one really. I don't feel ready for it, although I think I always do this. My honey and I leave Thursday at 4 am and will make our way to beautiful Colorado. I hope I get at least one day to drink it alllll in. I have been told it is absolutely beautiful this time of the year. I have been paintings almost every day to get ready for this trip. Hoping to sell out, but then aren't we all.
|Ya, this wall is NOT DONE!!|
|This one IS done!! |
I have ONE PAINTING to do this afternoon and then I am going home to take a nappy until 6 am tomorrow morning..... Take a break yourself today. I has been a long HOT CRAZY WEEK!!!
