Has your summer been as hot as mine?  Not only in terms of heat but in terms of tasks to get done?  It seems that each time I carve out a little time to get some art done, another "something" must be done....and now! 
Late winter to early summer was very full of art and I am very grateful for that.  The spring solo show was fabulous and the summer show in Darien is still up through September (with pretty good sales for these crazy economic times).  But I have had to cancel my booth at Blue Ridge Mountains 11th Annual Wildlife & Nature Art Festival Sept 18 - 19, 2010 in Blue Ridge, GA.  I really hated that, but I simply did not have the inventory to do it justice.... and I was really stressing each and every day that got closer to the date.  I had actually carved out two weeks of studio time when both of our rent houses decided to turn over.  One was left pretty clean but the other has taken me (and ServPro) this week just to see the light at the end of the tunnel!  We've decided to really get it spic-n-span and try to sell it.  Anybody want an older farm house on five acres?  You can grow your own food?!  Speaking of food.... my studio floor is completely covered in a layer of pears waiting to be canned because the kitchen table is groaning with apples, tomatoes and peppers.  Canning will be night duty, for now I'm off to the farm house to scrub a tub!
