I am finally rested after the first weekend of the Art at the Source Open Studio Tour.
It was exciting to have people come see and respond to my art, but the set up and prelude to getting it all together was rather exhausting.
Many old friends and new, past students, art therapy colleagues and wandering art lovers and seekers, came through during the weekend.
The experience was exhilerating and inspiring. And although the economy is slow, I did make some sales the first weekend and got lots of positive responses to my work.
The gardens at Paulas property, where it was held in Sebastopol, on the edge of vineyards and apple orchards were exquisite, as were her stunning plein aire paintings. And I could look for hours at Mylette Welch's colorful and quirky dog paintings. If you are in Sonoma County next weekend, come on out and say hello.
