I have been a little 'quiet' here lately... apologise for not posting, but.... I broke my camera! Well, not intentionally, but as Sister Eugenia Margaret used to say "There's no such thing as un-intentional!". I left my camera outside in the garden and then it rained.... here's where that voice in the back of my head yells "I TOLD you to get the waterproof version!".
There's kind of good news here, too. Last Saturday we bit the bullet and bought a super-duper SLR... which I can't figure out. The 'training' disks are like they were in Greek. For 3 days I've been debating whether to bring it back for a 'better' point-and-shoot version (also much cheaper) or to stick it out. So either I learn the new camera asap or bring it back and get the P-A-S PLUS another little pocket camera (and have $$ to spare) - either way I'll be posting by Monday. I'm PAINTING, just not posting. Actually I've been busy with those commissions, which, instead of being a chore, are actually turning out to be quite fun... and that's the way it should be.
Many of you know, through a personal email I sent out, that I was featured in a Blog Article www.annechovie.blogspot.com by Anne Harwell. She's a fun artist/designer that I check in on from time to time because she always has interesting thoughts and work.
ALSO.... and this is huge - I got myself a new studio!!!!! Yes, 'putting it out to the universe' does work! I'll be in Middletown, RI on Aquidneck Island in a suite with 4 other artists. There's some shared space and some individual studios. Being messy, I get an individual studio. I'll post some photos as we move in. Thanks for enduring this very long post.
