Well I haven't dropped off the face of the earth.. As someone asked.. :D I have done painting, just been bad about posting. Chickens and other critters for the fairs have been on the agenda. Stay tuned. I'll get a few up this week, summer and other things going on have keep me busy.
The pottery has had me a bit enthralled. Ok, more like enchanted! I was told a few weeks ago that porcelain was not for a beginner. Good thing I didn't hear that when I started, as porcelain was my choice of medium with the pots. Was the same as my beginning situation with painting. No one was teaching me that I should not stretch so far ahead of my capabilities. The result of independent study, for me, is a more complete understanding of where I am at and where I want to be. It is a study in progress.

The festival went well. Sales were down a bit from last year, but that is ok, it was fun!!
Sold some painting and pots too.
The pots are my first batch.. I tried a couple of differant colors so I could maybe find something I liked. Found out from a potter at the festival that reds don't do well when fired with greens.. SO.. that is why my reds are not red red. ::sigh:: Don't you just love a long learning curve?
Oh.. I also had a chance to do a few plein air paintings. One I gave to a young aspiring artist, age 6 or so.
