Busy as a Bee






















student "Grace" w/painting
daughter Grace with date

The last five days have been ... busy, very busy! If I haven't gotten back to you, it is not because I haven't wanted to, I have just been swamped...

Our online shop is all a buzz, (thankyou dear readers) the gallery is simply filled daily and there are four major events at artstream this month! Last night was the children's art exhibit at the library, with 60 of my students work on display. It coincided with my daughter Grace's senior semiformal and some rain thrown in for good measure. This Saturday brings our Poet to artists project conclusion with a performance and next Saturday is filmstream our short film festival.

Through all this we are cooking up something grand for next year -
We are going to announce in early December a special call for entries for a project in Feburary for the gallery and a very good cause. That is all I will say for now .... All you artists - stay tuned!

The word for the day is ... patience ... as in ... one can never have enough.

Oh goodness, I know I am a few years away from 'date' time, but it sure puts butterflies in my stomach and aches in my heart... they are growing up so quickly...
Can't wait to hear what NEW adventures you have in store for us....

So. What is the secret? I have never been known for my patience. But seriously, the picture of Grace and beau is great and tongue in cheek's comment so apt. Ohhhh they grow up too fast!!!! And she is a wonderful young lady; Chloe, too.
