I woke this morning just in time to hear my interview on Weekend Arts Magazine. After it was taped I couldn't remember one word I had uttered. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I sounded articulate and hopefully interesting to listeners. My artist talk went fairly well today after technology glitches got straightened out. It doesn't seem to matter how much you prepare ahead of time with machines- they get you in the end. It was great to see old friends and new faces for the talk. Jeanette Jobson, fellow blogger showed up and it made me feel very connected to blogland.
That was my last commitment for awhile. I feel fancy free right now. Tomorrow I go to my summer house for two weeks of relaxation and painting. I am in a summer show at the Leyton Gallery at the end of June and I plan to finish two paintings for it. I have some general ideas that will become specific as I start to paint.
My posting decreases greatly in the summer months because the only internet access is by dial up. This summer we've decided we just can't bear the slowness and would rather do without. Email by Blackberry and cell phone will be our connection to the outside world. This will have to do.
All of my work is now up on the Leyton Gallery site for those interested in checking it out. My next post will be in two weeks.
