With Intensity

It's day 15 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge! I'm half way there, and the wall is growing!


Some of the pieces aren't shown because they are piled with the rest of the mess that is my work table. Wednesday, I'm going to start hanging my installation in the windows of the Old Drum Coffee House in Warrensburg for Burg Fest the 23rd and 24th. I'm also bringing my completed30in30 project to hang up in the coffee house. The installation and the 30in30 works will be on display until the end of October.

Monday, I started the Artist Inc fellowship program. I am so excited for this opportunity and am in awe of all the talented people in the class.  Much of the first class was spent introducing ourselves, talking about our fears and expectations, and the goal setting process.

We were put into teams with a professional artist advisor. Go Team Orange! In our teams, we will talk about our homework and set art/business goals for the upcoming week. Half of my group are musicians and then there is one painter/illustrator, an installation artist, and me!

This week we are writing our obituaries. Talk about scary. What would you want to be remembered for? This is supposed to help us iron out what our values are so that we can make goals to head in that direction. It's daunting, and I'm still a little too scared to start.

This week has been a hurricane of activity and I almost haven't been able to catch up. I'm single parenting for a while, juggling Bea's schedule and two class schedules; my posts may be sporadic, so grab your cup of coffee and enjoy! 

Reading: I'm in the September/October issue of Nebraska Life! The reporter came out to the Art Farm while I was there last October. The Harvest, the Art Farms open house, is scheduled for October 22-23 this year.


Listening: So many lectures, but there has been some great cross-over between my secretary and art business classes.

Cooking: Smoked Salmon Chowder. I have no time, I'll be eating out of this pot of chowder for the next week. At least it's delicious and full of hearty veggies.
