Early September - St. Louis Art Fair.
This is my booth.
You know, entering a big show like this (and getting in!) was probably slightly daft considering the aggressive teaching schedule I had during that exact time frame. I mean, really, what was I thinking???
But you know what? Things work out.
Between teaching gigs I was able to paint like a mad woman, and also paint with a purpose of filling that booth. It allowed me to really let loose and p-l-a-y. Mainly because I didn't have a lot of time, but also because I used those precious painting hours to de-stress. It was really marvelous and reminded me that I need to paint for me too. Not just to develop class samples and to write articles, but also because I.NEED.TO.PAINT.
It was a good reminder.
