Stack of Three Jellies, 6x6 Oil Painting by Kelley Macdonald

SOLD



Oh, despite the rain it was a WONDERFUL Open Studio~  Friends old and new dropped by and braved the drippy skies to say hello, see new work, and take new pieces home with them.  I had fabulous friends helping me, Jane Colbath and Carol Zaloumis were in charge of the 'cash wrap' desk - Meelynna Lor was so wonderful both the day before labeling and on Saturday patiently walking Jane and I through the 'Square' over and over and over.  (Got it now, Meelynna!)

Many, many of you came out, too, and I can't tell you how I appreciate seeing you in person!  I had a raffle for one of my new resin coated paintings for my blog followers only, and the winner was - unbelievably - Carol Zaloumis!  Unbelievable, because she didn't want her name in the jar - and I argued that it didn't matter that she was 'working' with me, if she was a blog follower - she was eligible!  And now... she'll receive her painting in the mail.

I am taking a break.  Summer was all work for me so far (granted, the best work one can possibly have...) but I'm going to enjoy the end of the summer, and if I get a little painting in... good!  If not, I'll let my creative juices stew, and enjoy my family before diving back in with new ideas and inspirations in September!
