Up Next: Art Walk!

It's Monday, and the first (official) day of summer! This past weekend we survived the 62nd FIBArk madhouse (not personally present for all 62 events, mind you) whilst simultaneously celebrating the opening of our Farmers Market and dodging the 2,000 cyclists who arrived to complete the annual Ride the Rockies tour.

Busy weekend? Understatement.

 Seems like I'm always taking photos on the wrong side of the street at the wrong time of day.  Book Haven window, ready to go! Actually, a linocut sold this weekend, so I had to bring a replacement today. 
Ain't THAT grand?

But that was yesterday, and today we have to start preparing in earnest for this coming weekend, Salida's 18th Annual ArtWalk. (Also not personally present for every ArtWalk event, but certainly for half of them!) I have a little display of linocuts in the window at our local independent bookseller, the Book Haven, and will be giving a demonstration of my printmaking process at the store this Saturday from 1:30-3:00 or so. David Tipton (aka the DM) will be playing there from noon-2:00, with the good possibility that his friend and partner from Windwood, Matt Traum, will sit in with him. If you've never experienced a Chapman Stick / EWI musical duo before (and quite honestly, I don't know where else you even COULD) you're in for a treat.

 The window from inside.

So what else is new? (Geez, isn't that enough?)

I'm wrapping up a couple of interpretive panel projects this week, as well as starting on some educational materials for another client. And getting ready to hang another collection of work at the Salida Café on July 2. And...


And of course there's always a new print just around the corner... I need to get started on a small linocut commission this week, too... yikes! What am I sitting around here for? I have to get back to work.

Oops. I almost forgot. Mystery countdown: FOUR

    Well, I'm exhausted just reading about your schedule. Sounds like your having a busy, but fabulous time!
