Dear Poor and Neglected Blog....

I honestly can't believe that it is December already, and I have let another month slip right by without posting anything new to my blog. I apologize to all of my blog friends out there. I promise that I will make it more of a priority to show up here more often, and share some things. I promise!!


So, Art of the Carolina's came and went in a flash. I always, always, always look so forward to that show. Its like a big family reunion. I think that this was my 9th year going, and I can't get enough of it. The energy, and the eye candy, and just so amazing. I demoed there again this year, and wow!! Just pure bliss! I don't think I even realized how exhausted I was......long, long days that seemed to slip by within minutes. I would get home at9 or 10ish each night, back up at 4:30am, and at the show by 8!!! Gotta love a great art getaway!!!




Somehow, the show leads to Art Overload for me. Maybe its all the eye candy, or all the ideas...or all the products that I just can't wait to try....then, I come back to my studio and want to play with it all at once..


I spent the Thanksgiving holiday clearing out some things in my studio....Oh, thats right, I got myself a Giant easel, and some Ginormous canvases....I will post some pics for you all soon. They both sit (a month later) still pristine...I did sit one of my journals on the easel to dry, so does that count for something.


I sent 2 full boxes of various art supplies to my son's art teacher...I just have a lot of stuff....Does one really need 11 filled watercolor palettes??? Really!! Or, 16 sets of watercolor pencils??? You see where this is going, right...

My clearing out project is still underway, but, I'm getting there. I also got a new "painting table", so I have to make room for it to go in my studio...Clearing out is so very refreshing. Sometimes, too much of a good thing, is not good at all...sometimes.

Anywho, I promise to come back before January rolls around....Promise!

Have a great Saturday!

Until next time,

Ophelia

Hi Ophelia. I'm so glad you have managed to keep on top of this challenge despite leading such a busy life - your pages are always fabulous. Your art getaway sounds awesome. Thanks for joining the calendar challenge and well done for keeping up all year! What an achievement! Didn't we do well? Maybe next year?! Kate x
P.S. 16 sets of watercolour pencils???! Really?!

Sounds like someone has been having fun! New supplies to play with and clearing out of the old. What a perfect time of year for a fresh studio. Can't wait to see what you paint first. I think this journal drying on the easel counts. lol
Hope you are enjoying your holiday season.
Hugs,
Tammy

I hate clutter too, and the stuff in here is taking over, so may have to take a leaf out of your book. Glad to see you posting again, and a bit envious of Art in the Carolinas - a place I've never visited but would like to!

Yay for you! Glad you're taking a chance on some big canvases! It's SO much fun. When is your Birthday? Mine was the 9th. Looks like you and I are both December babies. Take care of you :)
