The Bainbridge Island Studio Tour is coming up next weekend (November 30-December 2), so I have spent much of this weekend in my studio (or, the basement for some). I do so love the smell of melting beeswax and the way the room gets all cozy with the hot pot and griddle all afternoon. I spent a bunch of time with all the grunt stuff, too - getting frames ready, paiting the edges of panels, cutting foam core.... the not creative stuff. It must be done.
If you are in the area, come by and see me. I will be at stop 2 on the tour - The American Legion Hall. You can find a downloadable map at http://www.bistudiotour.com/. This event is a great place to support local artists and find some really fun and unique holiday gifts. I have a few new things in store for this tour.... some bugs and sand dollars, along with the fun collage seascapes I had the last time around.
Hope to see you there!
