Opening up my artist home and studio to customers brings a unique and intimate experience to people – it’s very few who does this as it’s much more common to take your show on the road – which I may one day do again. This is more of a gallery-feel, but in the intimacy of my home where you see how an artist also lives and paint. It’s a whole different playing field and I’m so glad that old [...]
My darling 3-year old niece came carrying these to the Open Studio event. She had chosen the bouquet herself. I loved it. It's almost been a week since the Open Studio event but I'm still so excited about it.

Woo hoo! I've started prepping for the Open Studio Event over the last couple of weekends whenever I've had a free moment. Well, the actual prepping for this year's Open Studio Event started months ago when Lauren and I set a date that would work for us both. I mailed out the "Upcoming Events" postcard early fall, and the invitations went out early October. The photo above is from when I addressed 100 envelopes one early Saturday morning [...]
