July is going out like a proverbial lion! Two big things are going on during this next week which YOU should know about. First, I will be at the Ithaca Artists' Market this Friday, July 27th. This event runs from 2-8 PM at the farmers' market pavilion (which means I get to spend three days in a row there this weekend), and includes over 70 artists from around the region in a variety of media. Plus food and libations and music, you can make an evening of it. I will be in booth #43. Please come, support the local arts, try on my painted shoes, bring me snacks!
I am also joining Handwork, a cooperative art and fine craft store in downtown Ithaca, starting next Monday the 30th. I'm excited to have a place to present my Wingtip shoes in a gallery setting, as well as a whole lot of my cards and calendars. They are open every day except major holidays, so if you are local then you need never run out of my cards.
In general, this week is a little nutty. All of the above, plus a major home improvement project involving carpets which I won't go into here. I do have some nice new art to show you though! I've started my new watercolor paintings for the 2013 calendars, and here is Miss February, working from a photo I took of a Thai temple dragon.
