I just found I got into another show in California (yay!), this one at the Haggin Museum in Stockton. It's the Stockton Art League 56th National Juried Exhibition. It's just one sculpture, Kickstand, but that's OK, that's probably all I can afford to ship right now anyway.
Been pushing myself to get into the studio as much as possible. Class will be over at the end of this week (July 30th) and that will help. Right now the heat is a killer and that makes it hard to want to put on jeans and work boots. I was actually welding in long shorts the other day! In addition right now I am having a squirrel infestation. Although I don't mind the critters they have just trashed the insulation, which is now hanging down all tattered and such. I have to do something soon before the cold weather gets here in a few months.
The commission at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson, that I am working on with Martha Ferris had been rescheduled for later in the fall, of course that's exactly when I will be the busiest. But no matter, I am sure it will all work out in the end. My students and friends ask how do I make plans for using funds when projects get delayed or temporarily tabled all the time, I tell them, I don't make plans until I have an actual check deposited in my back account; until then it's all just neat ideas on paper!
