Time Away

I can't believe it's been this long since I've posted something new. I think all my years of teaching make me feel like summer is time away, but that's not probably true in the blogging world. Several things have kept me busy and away from posting and commenting.

First, I had a booth at the Summer Art Market in Denver on June 13-14th. The weather had been quite stormy but we were lucky the first day--the hail missed us by five blocks. The second day ended early with funnel clouds appearing overhead around 2:30. I wasn't sure what to expect in the way of sales due to the economy--not to mention the weather--but I was pleasantly surprised and had a very successful show.

Second, my computer died. What a pain! Configuring a new computer is like trying to make a best friend overnight. It doesn't work. It simply takes time and I'm still not finished.

Third, I've been entertaining family, trying to get some painting accomplished, and doing a bit of traveling. I'm headed out of town again tomorrow for the next 10 days to Glacier National Park, and I'm looking forward to spending quite a bit of time plein air painting.

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer full of great painting. I'll be gone for a few more weeks. Until then, take care.
