Egads!



I like that word. Egads!!

haha.

Anyway...I said that the other day when Michael said that he had built 83 panels of varying sizes for me!!! Egads! 83...panels....I *hope* that will get me through the summer. If it doesn't, well, I am going to raise my prices 125% and hire an assistant :)

I had a good weekend. Not as much work done as I would have liked, but I am waiting for my panels to be finished so I can get to work on them. I want to put more paintings in my shop....

I went to a craft fair in Flint that was really fun. It was called Flint City Handmade. It took about an hour to drive there, but Flint was actually kinda cute. I thought it would be like Pontiac. Run down and abandoned, but it wasn't. They even had really good coffee! :) yay!

I also met a fellow Ety peep! yay! My first Etsy peep. His Etsy shop is Kill Taupe and he was recently a featured seller. I bought these awesome Detroit Hooker magnets :)

I almost met him a few weeks ago at the 323 Gallery opening...he has work there too...but I was too shy. Anyway, this time I just walked right up and said hi, and he was really really nice. He's thinking about moving to Portland! He totally should. I think he would fit right in.

Anyway..that's about it. Look for new paintings very soon...very very soon.

Have a good Monday.

ps only 8 days until I leave for NYC!!

Love those Hooker magnets...ha!

Can't wait to see your new paintings, Michele. And that recent photo you took of Chloe sleeping with her tongue hanging out is priceless!

Hi Michele,

I've been painting up a storm so somehow 83 panels sounds like being really rich to me. Like a 5 pound bag of peanut M and M's. or ???

Thanks for the encouragement to try the pink fish painting again. I think I will!

I am up for a handmade fair too. Do you know of any such things that happen in Oregon?

Hope spring has landed there too.

I have been admiring your work for a while now...your blog brightens my day. I just thought I would share with you my favorite palindrome -
Egad an adage!
