A day of fun and preparation

Today was a pretty fun day.. I had 2 classes of art journalers… For both classes I asked them to look through magazines and find things that reminded them of summer. Then we cut them out and arranged a 2 page spread with them. Here are a couple of them One did not finish her gluing so I wasn’t able to take a picture.

The remainder of my day was spent taking artwork down to the spraying room and making sure everything had enough coats of varnish. I need to be sure these will dry by by Saturday so I can pack them up for the wine and art festival on Sunday. Apparently I will also be putting new wires on them Saturday as I had to order wire from Amazon.

Those are just a few I think I have eight or nine pieces in all to take with me. Ciao for now!

Art and Wine Festival coming up

This week is a very hectic week. It’s my teaching week, and it is the week I am trying to get all of my artwork ready for a show I’m going to be in on Sunday, July 18th. It is the Art and Wine Festival at Mackinaw Vineyard. I love this show, I love the vineyard, the atmosphere. It’s just a really fun place to be. If you get a chance you should come out… there is a pond and I think there’s a fountain and a gazebo that goes out into the pond. There is a pavilion to get out of the direct sun where artists are displaying and hopefully selling their Wares. I love seeing all of the different things on display. There is also typically been music. One year there was a guy who reminded me of James Taylor sitting and strumming on his guitar playing very pleasant music. Another year was a trio of musicians who are equally as pleasant just a little bit louder. All in all it’s a very good show and makes for a wonderful Sunday afternoon. Look it up! Mackinaw Valley Vineyard in Illinois. The show is from noon till 6 p.m. Maybe I’ll see you there!

This is one of the pieces I’ve been working on for the show, the texture in it is great! I have several others at the studio that I am putting wires on the back of this week. Maybe I will sneak a couple Peeks in tomorrow.
