This weekend started off with more than a little excitement. We woke up Saturday morning to find that a small barn across the intersection from the new/old house was on fire. But thanks to some inexactness on the emergency log, the fire could just as easily have been our house. So we jumped out of bed and rushed over. (Just to be clear, the fire was across the street from the house I grew up in, which is the house we’re renovating to move into someday. That’s also the house with my new studio. We currently live about a mile from there.)
Later that day, I planned on getting in some studio time to finish up a few new pieces for New York Gift this week, only to find I had run out of acetylene. (And I wouldn’t be able to get more until Monday.)
So I took it as a sign, tried to relax a little, worked on my line sheet, and snuck in a little painting. Not exactly the weekend I had planned, and way more excitement then I needed!
Now that I’m back to full tanks, I’m finishing up some new pieces, photographing them, and finishing those pesky line sheets! I can’t believe I leave for New York on Friday!
