Working 9 to 5


Life is going at 100 MPH for me right now. And I'm going to follow that with:

life is strange

Here's why:

Monday, I was all mopey because my mom left. It was sadder than normal, for reasons that I can't really explain on my blog (too personal on her side). Then came Tuesday. I was getting ready to head back into my studio for the redo, and take some pictures for the blog. Then I get a new friend request [on Facebook] from a local artist (a popular one - you know - the 'you think wouldn't pay any attention to me' kind of popular.) And THEN, she asks if I'd be interested in displaying/selling my art at a music festival this weekend!

Um, YES!!!

So, she gave me the info, I signed up and I've been working frantically to get new pieces done!

A new painting in progress
Normally I wouldn't go for something so last minute, but something inside me has told me to, "go for it!" So, that's what I'm doing. I have no expectations and if all else, I get the to spend the day listening to live music and eating junk food!

So, I'm putting a pause on my studio redo. But, with what I've done so far has made it usable. And I'm really loving that!

Wish me luck for Saturday. I'll post pics next week, along with the outcome.
