I feel like a "Busy, Backson" from Winnie the Pooh

Whew.
Whew Whew.
Whew Whew Whew.

This week has been a whirlwind.  I completed the items for the solo art show that opens June 10th at the Oxford Community Art Show from 5 to 9 and delivered most of them--have another load to take next week when we finish setting everything up.

I submitted 7 proposals for national workshops.

I cleaned up the certified disaster I call my studio after finishing the art pieces and had a successful first friday open studio evening tonight.  I feel like I am on the go, go, go all of the time but think that I've gotten a long way toward accomplishing my goals.  I'm a full time artist.  That's awesome.  I'm so busy with stuff that I have a back log of projects.  I have custom work that I'm excited to do and delivered two customized jobs to two happy customers this week.  I have a developing interest in my work and I'm excited to get going on some new projects and proposals.  And...I'm craving some time to paint.  Was invited to join the Plein Air group in Oxford.  Need to find out more information on it first though.

Whew.  This weekend is dedicated to family obligations. Katie graduates from high school and Wendy turns 50.  And have to try to help Judy not be too depressed as she will be thinking of Bruce and Timothy who passed away within six months of each other.  And of course, tomorrow I will be remembering the passing of my mother 26 (!!!) years ago.
