In Tijeras tomorrow

Tomorrow I will be back out at the Tijeras Art Market. Also, my hubby, Aaron Lewis, will be playing his classical/contemporary guitar at the Market from 10:30am to 1:30pm. Come out and see my new art, listen to some great music and see all the other great art!

Hope to see you there!

Where's my head?

I've been running around like a chicken with her head cut off recently. Way too much stuff to do and little time to do it all. Sound familiar? I think I am always in this state of mind. Until after December though, there is no chance to slow down and clear my mind! Oh well, that's ok, because I love what I do!!

The State Fair is less than 2 weeks away and I have more than 2 weeks worth of work to do. Aaron and I have decided that we will work long days until then to get ready. What choice do we have?! We are planning a day off the day before the Fair starts, IF we get everything done in time. We will need the day off before the 17 straight days at the Fair!!

This weekend, or should I say Saturday only, I will be back out at the Tijeras Art Market. Hope to see you there! Aaron(dh) will be playing his guitar from 10:30 to 1:30 so you shouldn't miss it!

Today is my middle son's 17th birthday! Where did all the time go? Seems like just yesterday......well, you know! So, on top of everything else, I have to go home early today and get the kitchen clean for the family dinner with grandparents etc. tonight.

I have some new paintings done, just need to take photos and post them. Also working on more frames for the daily journal paintings. I will have them done by next week, hopefully, in time for the Fair!!

I guess that's all the news that's new for now! Have a wonderful day!! :)

201 posts!

Logging in today, I realized that my last post was number 200!! So, to celebrate, this week I'm having a drawing for a free print! To enter, leave a comment with the name of your favorite print. If you are unsure of the title, you can find them in my shop listings. Oh, and make sure you leave me your email or some way to contact you. I will put all the names in a hat and pick a winner to be announced on Friday. You will have until Friday morning to leave your comments. The winner will have their choice of a print from my shop.

Also, wanted to thank everyone for their get well wishes! I'm feeling much, much better today. Starting to get my voice back after losing it over the weekend out at the Tijeras Art Market. I will be out at the market again on Labor Day weekend.

The next four weeks will be busy with preparations for the New Mexico State Fair. I have a booth again this year and the best part is we will be out on Main Street this year instead of being behind the petting zoo and McDonald's farm!

Hope to see lots of locals out there! I will have lots of new work!

Under the weather

Turns out I will not be at the Gallup show tonight. I came down with some kind of virus on Tuesday and I still don't feel better. I think I've been pushing my self a little too hard recently. Spent most of the day yesterday sleeping. I'm taking it easy today, a little painting in the studio, so I can be rested and feeling better in time for the Tijeras Art Market this weekend.

I also listed a couple more of the framed daily paintings in my Etsy shop this morning.

First Friday Tonight!

I've been so busy lately, I forgot to post something about the First Friday event tonight! It will be at the Factory on 5th, just north of downtown Albuquerque. My studio will be open and Aaron will be playing guitar. There are 16 other artists involved as well. Hours are 6-11pm tonight.

In other news, I will be at the opening of a group show at House of Lyndon gallery in Gallup, NM on Thursday, August 9th from 6-9pm. I'm working on finishing up a new large painting for this show. This is a great gallery with several awesome artists showing, including gallery owner and artist, Lyndon Tsosie.
