Thanks to the 800+ people who visited my studio as part of this year's EastSide Culture Crawl. I truly appreciate your support and comments. Thanks to Esther Rausenberg (Executive Director), Jodi Ponto (Admin) and the Crawl Board for all their hard work. Thanks to the friends who came to say hello, often bearing refreshments. Thanks to Ian MacLeod for stopping in and for the photo!
For those of you who submitted an idea for my 'Name This Painting' contest, I'll review the ideas over the upcoming week and post the winners here.
Keep in mind that original art is happening all over the city all year long. A great way to carry the inspiration throughout the year is to visit artists' studios on First Saturday Open Studios. This is a grass-roots, growing event where artists choose to open their studios to the public from noon-5pm on the first Saturday of each month. If I am in town, I usually put out my sign and work in the studio for the day. It's nice to have a visit/coffee/chat with people throughout the day.
Back in the studio tomorrow!
