Whew, it’s been a roller coaster week for me of fulfilling pushed off appointments and teaching the therapy journal on the back of my wonderful Art Crawl experience, and I took today to catch up on paperwork, clean the upstairs studio, and generally have a breather.
Believe it or not, I came up to the studio and discovered that my cymbidium orchid is blooming!
Last I remember it just had five little shoots starting to come up. What a lovely surprise. I’m always amazed at this
little big orchid after everything it’s been thru.
And, while I’m still enjoying my tropicals in this space, I’m also looking forward to having them outside…especially for the Art in the Garden tour. Yes, that’s right! I’ve applied the garden and now must work on applying my songbirds.
Inspiration is all around me here. And I need it, because I just put two songbirds into an exciting on-line auction curated by ArtBomb, one songbird, the King Sparrow, will be featured next week.
I’ve got merlins on a 1950s map of Austria on the go right now.
And I must get to varnishing this oil painting called The Wild from Howe Sound because it will be included in a group show “Clouds” from March 24th to April 22nd at The CityScape Community Art Space. I’m so excited to be one of 50 artists showing. I love group shows. You can bet I’ll be taking tons of photos.
Now all I need…how did someone put it on FB the other day?…4 days of sleep, 5 pounds gone, and $10,000 by tomorrow. Actually, I just really need the 4 days sleep. 😀
