Busy (and buggy) Weekend
Well even though my new car is a terrible gas guzzler, it is perfect in every other way. It has the best cup holders ever AND very easily fits 22 paintings into the back (including the 40x60 panel, wow!) not to mention more annuals than a girl could ever want.
So this was a busy holiday weekend. Doug spent most of it in the vegetable garden, I spent half my time in my studio finishing up the paintings so I could deliver them to the gallery on Monday, and the rest of the time I planted flowers and cleaned up my flower gardens a bit. The drawback of being outside so much this time of the year are the bugs that have been saving up their toxins all winter for us. We get the worst bites this time of the year! Doug and I both have bug bites that are red, swollen and incredibly itchy; his worst is on his left hand, mine are on my ears. Lovely.
But despite the killer bugs it was a lovely weekend. And I am very happy to have finished up the work for this show. Now it's time to tackle everything that has been piling up around here. Oh yeah, and get my new studio painted. Yayyy!
