~ Heavy Metals
Coming soon to Art166.com or my "Small Works" Etsy shop!

I had such high hopes for this week's adventures in blogging. That is, until I realized that in two days I'm swapping out a dozen pieces in my local "real world" exhibit. Also, I've signed up for two Arts & Craft fairs within the next 30 days. I can't help myself!
So, instead of blogging, surfing, and indulging in my other low-stress Internet activities, I'm printing, cutting, matting, framing, designing and assembling my heart out!
The good news? (There always has to be good news --) The last time I was in such a creative frenzy, back in early September, the temperature in my studio/kitchen hovered at 100 degrees F and higher. Today, that room will measure a moderate 76-82 degrees. That's far from my preferred 65-70 degree comfort zone, but a world away from the sweltering, endless misery of the last six months. Whew!
I'll pop in here as time permits (I can only stay away so long), and should be on a more regular posting schedule by the end of November. I'm working on some great, unusual (of course!) pieces for the upcoming fairs. I'll show some of them off as they're completed.

I'm offering 8"x10", 5"x7", 2.5" x 3.5" (ACEOs) and smaller, art prints for sale at the fairs (one of which will be held on a college campus). I'm open to suggestions as to which of my pieces (Art166.com) you think would be most appealing in these small sizes.
The dates for these fairs are November 10th & 20th and I'm hoping for nice, cool weather. We certainly don't have to worry about unexpected snowfall, but that would be so amazing!

Thanks, as always, for your great comments on my last couple of posts. "Beyond" is particularly unusual, and it was great to see it so appreciated. I'm exhibiting it in Timo's Coffeehouse as of Saturday morning!
Now, I'm going back to work before I get too comfy on this couch. Later, guys!
