If it's Friday it must be.....

Yep. I've stooped to cliché titles. My brain is too full of other things to be even remotely clever just now.

There IS lino-cutting happening, albeit slowly and with many disruptions.


I was on the road for five days last week, for the Animalia exhibition at the Loveland Museum (show runs through August 21) and to give a short workshop for the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies in Allenspark. While I was out I visited some galleries and spent many hours parked in a WIFI-enabled coffee shop writing materials for other upcoming workshops and programs.

Since I returned I've been up to my eyeballs in framing, packing, and shipping work to collectors and galleries and exhibitions. Today I tried to print out the materials for one of my workshops and instead spent entirely too much time troubleshooting a cranky printer and then running out of ink. (And the one place in town that carries it was OUT, of course.) Plenty of other things to do instead, but it would have been nice to tick this particular task off my to-do list.

Oh, yes. The glamorous life of the artist, who spends her days sipping cognac, discussing Proust, and creating only as the muse strikes.

NOT.

Don't get me wrong. I'm quite aware of how fortunate I am to be involved in all of these activities! But, ooph... it sure would be nice to push some real ink for a bit. Of course I'm headed out of town again for a few days, but perhaps I can sneak in some press time before I go. If I do, you'll be the first to know!

In the meantime... Denver-area peeps can check out the Landscape show at Abend Gallery, and Salida-area peeps can get ready for Salida ArtWalk. 'Cause there's a reason for all this running around, after all!
