Happy Sunday everyone! It is my last day of summer break. Teacher institutes start back up, through Zoom, tomorrow morning. I just had my first back-to-school dream on Friday night - they happen every year. It involved different buildings I've worked it, different coworkers, all intermingled. The crazy part is I forgot my mask and it didn't seem to be a big deal because several students and staff were without masks. It was bizarre! So thankful in that regard that my school is remote for quarter 1 and then reassessing. I miss the kiddos though. Art through Zoom just isn't the same.
I've been making the most of my summer break in the studio. I have kept pretty regular hours the last six or so weeks there. I have some larger pieces that I have been working on to prepare for The Other Art Fair, which is currently scheduled for mid-October (it is 2020 though, so that could change). In between those larger pieces I have also been working on some small ones. I have 6-8 small wood panel works finished and ready to hit the shop on Tuesday at 4PM (preview of some of the wood panels below). I have three gouache paintings on paper that will be up too! The florals and small rainbows are also still listed if you've had your eye on any of those.
I also finished four commissioned pieces this month. Commissions are open so if there is something you would like me to make specifically for you and your space check out the commissions page!
It's been a busy two weeks since I last wrote on the blog and I'm happy to keep it that way!
Hope you are making the most of the next 137 days of 2020. It's taken a lot of pivoting in every aspect of life, but I hope you keep pivoting!
