Time to Take A Break

This is a photo taken of the Award Winners who participated in the 2007 Aldridge Botanical Gardens Art Festival-June 2nd and 3rd. That's me anchoring the left side of the picture. I received an Honorary Mention Award.

I have a new "sponsor." Yeaaaaa! As of last Saturday, my work can be viewed at the Lyda Rose Gallery (Homewood, Ala).

I had a great time showing my prints.
The two day venue was effortless and seeing old faces and meeting new patrons was a lot of fun. I've discovered that I'm really in my element when exhibiting. Why, oh why, do I feel as tho I have to work 9 to 5 in a job that does not bring me half the pleasure as exhibiting and selling my art work?? Oh, that's right. . . medical and dental benefits. Duh-uh.

I have survived the last few weeks of art festivals and one wonderful weekend of commencement activities. Whew! As we roll into the summer months, my goal will be to spend as much time as I can sketching and creating new lino block prints and needlepoint art.

While you're waiting for my next post, visit my daughter's blog. She always has a lot of fun, inspiring design recommendations and interesting product tidbits to read about. You'll find her blog here: MAKE IT.
