Home again...for now.

Fall is well under way in Minnesota!
I am finally home once more from an exhaustive summer season.  I managed to finish my piece for the Werewolf Calendar in July, and that was all I was able to do before I got too busy to do art.  I began working in July on getting the matted prints and frames ready for the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and several other shows.  Sandra took a chunk of it with her to Pennsic War (an SCA event) at the beginning of August, and when she got home we rushed up to Minnesota to open our booth at the Ren Fair.  The Minnesota Renaissance Festival runs seven weekends and we wouldn't be back until the end so we had to make sure the booth had plenty of product.  Once that was set up we rushed home to New Mexico again and got ready for the next round of shows.  All in all I was home about five days in September.  Otherwise I was traveling to a show, at a show, or frantically making more product.  We finished out the summer with the end of the Ren Fair this last weekend, and now we are home to recuperate and get ready for the back-to-back Christmas shows starting in November.

So that is where I have been and what I have been up to :9

This month I am going to rest, get caught up on business and home life, and try to squeeze in some commissions.  I can't make any promises about art/commissions as I am still really busy in the midst of the show season, but I will do what I can do in the time I have.  Otherwise art will begin in earnest in January.

I hope everyone had a lovely summer and is enjoying the early fall!  I know I am ready for fall leaves, wood smoke, cooler temps, and pumpkin-flavored everything! ^.^

  1. Oh, do I ever relate! I don't have your professional schedule (yet), but I have been juggling all kinds of "anti-art" forces.

    I wish you and Sandra all the best of success in your autumn/holiday season! Hang in there!
