Okay, I've had a couple weeks to recover and reflect. This was my 4th annual Open Studio and to be absolutely honest...it was the toughest one yet to get ready for....but also the best one yet in many ways.
Usually we start prepping for this event by mid-summer, doing house projects, yard work and such. I start working on promotion and indoor projects, specific to Open Studio, early in August. This year, due to my solo show at Mkt Place Gallery, we didn't start gearing up until late August/early September. That was a big mountain to climb. We have learned our lesson!
Now, I am not complaining. There were a number of contributing factors that delayed us and the art show was just the biggest one. We also had done this for 3 years and maybe thought we knew what we were doing...hahaha. But then I decided to re-hang the WHOLE house at the last moment when the 40+ paintings came home from the Mkt Place Gallery show. That complicated things a bit more!! :)
