Thanks to everyone who came out this past weekend (Sept 21-22) for the Edmonds Art Studio Tour for 2013. Last year we had a record turnout at my studio/house/gallery, so it was tough to live up to those numbers, but we still had a great time meeting new people, seeing old friends and selling some art. Mike O’Day was here again, bringing his amazing ceramic sculpture to the show. One of the best parts of this Tour is watching the faces of the kids who come through when they see Mike’s work. The adults who still have a “lot of kid left in them” usually get a look of “whoa, what’s this?” on their faces as well and that’s pretty fun to watch too.
As usual, I was busy up until the last minute trying to get some new work up on the walls and as always I missed a few pieces. But fortunately, I did get this one up so that another friend and artist could give it a good home.
As always, the next Edmonds Art Studio Tour will be the 3rd weekend in Sept, 2014.
For all the “critter lovers” on my blog email list, I’ll be at the “19th Annual Seattle Reptile Expo” Saturday and Sunday, Oct 12-13 2013 at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. I’ll be showing a lot of images of nature, which include all sorts of reptiles, amphibians, birds and butterflies, but I also bring along a lot of images that everyone seems to enjoy from every genre. If you’ve got kids, you really have to check out this show. They will go nuts.
Also coming up — Puget Sound Artists’ Gift Show, Saturday November 16th, 10am-6pm at the Artworks Building, 2nd & Dayton, Edmonds.
