Upcoming shows and GREAT news!

I cannot believe how busy I have been lately! I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted here! The next two weekends I have two shows coming up.

Tijeras Art Market

This weekend I will be at the Tijeras Art Market, Saturday and Sunday, from 8am - 5pm. This will be my first time there and I'm really looking forward to it! The market space is nice and shady with permanent shade structures. The location is the East Mountain area just outside Albuquerque, off I-40 in the village of Tijeras. The market is located behind the Just Imagine Gallery and coffee shop.

Next Friday, July 6th, is my first, First Friday event at my new studio. The Factory on 5th is located just north of downtown Albuquerque on 5th street, between Aspen and Haines streets. My husband will be playing guitar as entertainment for the event.
So, if you are local or even if you are just visiting Albuquerque, I'd love to see you out at one of these events!
Now for the good, no GREAT, news! I mentioned back in May that I had some exciting news to share. Well, the news is official now! I have sold out of all my Paula Beck prints! All my black and white portrait and pottery prints that I have been threatening to bonfire for years are gone! This is a huge accomplishment for me as there were 7,000 prints left! I sold them all to one person in the Chicago area who plans to sell them as a fundraiser for a school/church. So, that is what I've been most busy with in the past month or so. I have always signed and numbered the prints as I needed them, so I have spent the past few weeks signing them all and getting them packed and shipped. Now they are gone for good! No more reminders of my past life!

Back home now

Home sweet home! Our trip was a blast! The concert was incredible! Plus we had some great visits with some long time friends.

I can't forget to mention that I met fellow blogger, Cynthia Guajardo, at the Summer Art Market in Denver. I forgot my camera that day, so she took the pics with hers. Follow the link to see them. I bought a wonderful vase from her, I will get a photo posted later. I also just received a card from her in the mail with a wonderful fabric postcard, thanks Cynthia! She is such a sweet lady!

The Police concert was the best concert I've ever seen! The opening band was Fictionplane, whose lead singer/bassist happens to be Sting's son. They were awesome! We got their cd, they were so good. The Police played all my favorite songs, and it was so incredible to see Stewart Copeland banging away on the drums in person!

On Sunday, June 10th, we spent the day up north of Fort Collins, visiting the spot next to the Poudre river where we were married, and eating dinner at the diner where we used to regularly go when we lived there.

When we came back, rather than driving straight down I-25, we decided to travel the back roads thru Alamosa, Colorado and Taos, NM. Beautiful drive! I doubt we will ever travel I-25 going north again.

Anyway, today(and most likely all weekend) I will be busy moving in to my new studio at the Factory on 5th. I will post some photos of our trip and the new studio once I get the computer all set up there. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!!!
