Return of the Delinquent Blogger

Geez, Louise, this has been my worst ever spell of non-blogging. I have had a lot of travel in these last 6 weeks - it is hard to remember what all I've done. But I want to check back in with all you blog peeps. I miss reading what everyone is up to....I am going to try to bring you up to date, little by little.

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.

    Welcome back!

  2. How did the St. Louis Art Fair go for you MB? I sure wish I could have been there and visited your booth. It's definitely one of the best, and one of my favorite, art fairs! Congrats for getting accepted, that's a really big deal.

  3. your classes were fantastic! does the wood icing come in any other flavors? :)

  4. I have been in a need to paint mood since I got home from Art is You. It feels so good. So does the fact that the fall is easing along and winter holds a nice long nesting time for me, with the promise of mucho painting and playing.
    Wishing you the same, Awesome One !
    hugs !

    That booth looks amazing. It's nice to have a bit of pressure to keep us motivated!

  6. I understand the NEED to paint! It's REAL! I was inspired by your post...Thanks from a fellow MM Painter.
