Two Saturdays ago I participated in the Artists Garage Sale at the Schack Art Center in Everett, Washington. This annual, one-day event is an opportunity for local artists and craftspeople to 'clean house' offering extra supplies, old artwork, and unneeded doodads cluttering the studio, at 'discount' prices. I took the opportunity to offer proofs of some of my print editions as well as some studio 'experiments' and note cards made from my blog sketches. My daughter and I spent the day hawking my wares and people watching. I sold proofs and cards to new friends and old and generally had a jolly good time. Here's a sampling of my note cards, (minus the watermark, of course).
And, two weeks ago, I finally finished the piece I had been working on since April. Alas, the edition has been hidden away in a drawer as I am very disappointed with how it turned out. It just took too darn long to complete and in that lengthy time I lost my mojo. I wonder if not looking at it for awhile will change how I feel about it, sometimes it does, but I rather doubt it. Oh well, on to the next.
