So, to get the ball rolling...tatatata

You may ask, why doesn't she just open an Etsy store? Why indeed? Because the whole affair has been a royal pain. Getting the photos the right size has been a huge challenge. They want one size for the store and one size for the gallery. I think. Oh god, I don't know, I'm so confused.
For right now, I will keep it simple and send any interested parties a Paypal money request.

my sentiments exactly
I took 2 wonderful classes with Stephanie Lee in May where I finally learned how to make a bezel. Yahoo!
I've been purging my studio since February. I moved my metal station out to the garage and sold off a lot of unused assemblage stuff. What a huge relief! I was feeling paralyzed by all the extraneous crap lying around.
Now, look at me. I just got back from Art & Soul and I'm so energized, it's crazy. I've been doing a lot of visual journaling after 3 days with Juliana Coles and I'm working on 2 pieces for the Guardino Gallery's "Day of the Dead Show" that opens on Oct 27.
That brings us up-to-date. I have more, but I'll keep it for another day.

I had 3 paintings in the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts this year and nothing sold. I did price them a bit high but thought that the fat cats over there in rich suburbia might reach into their deep pockets and come up with the scratch but noooooo…..

Speaking of stuff lying around...I'm feeling overwhelmed with all of the half-finished projects in my life. In the past 5 years I've accumulated tons of supplies and partially created things that I've started in classes and never finished. This is rare for me because I like to finish stuff right away but there are still a few odd assemblage pieces, the repousee book with one cover done, the canvasses with only the backgrounds painted sitting there staring at me in their mocking little way. I used to be so anal about these things. I couldn't continue on to another project until the last one was done and dusted but these days I've become yes, a slacker. Is this progress? A way of letting go? Can I move to the next step and actually remove these things from my sight? I'd say that trying to tie up these loose ends now would be taking a step backward. I know in my heart that I've learned all I can learn from them so trying to complete them would only be making my "grandma voice" happy. I'm thinking that now is the time to make a big donation to SCRAP.
