And the Dust Settles…

Dragon windchimeWeather in May is always a little iffy in New Mexico. A day blessed with sunny blue skies and temps in the 80s can be followed by a blustery day of sleet and a late frost.  The latter being a serious pain in the ass for this gardener. Especially when I’m trying to get the garden looking spiffy for Corrales Art Studio Tour. This year I was smart and only filled the pots with hardy annuals like pansies, snapdragons and dusty Millers. Because, above all things, I am lazy, and scrambling to protect tender plants from the cold, in addition to making “artz,” is entirely too much work.

This year, however, the weather for Corrales Art (&) Studio Tour was wonderful. (Apparently, the powers-that-be have decreed that Art Studio Tour isn’t sufficient and we now need an “and.” LOL.)  Just a few energetic breezes, but no weather phenomena that resulted in us having to schlepp art–heavy, metal art, *gasp, pant*–into the workshop.

Our studio was host to a steady flow of visitors, old friends, new friends, and neighbors. And some of them exchanged money for art! Saturday was a great day, but Sunday turned out to be even better. Possibly–Ha, ha–because Justin was left holding the fort while I wandered off to perform in a local production of The Mikado. Maybe I should disappear more often?

Once again, this was  a terrific event for us.  Now it’s time to catch up on commissions and make even more “fun” art. Our next show for 2017 will be Corrales Art in the Park in August.

See you there and thanks for supporting your local artists!
