Hidy-ho there, dear reader.

My apologies for my absence this week but first Blogger decided it didn't like the idea of me posting and then I was swamped with art related tasks such as getting some artist promo material ready for the Lilac Tea, which is only 2 weeks away I might add, and picking out pieces to head up north to be displayed at Bon Echo on top of my growing pile of works-in-progress that are screaming at me to be completed. I'm doing this on top of all the regular day-to-day tasks involved with living on a farm and tending my veggie garden.

Sound hectic? You bet, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. ;)

On a lighter and more exciting note I'm pleased as punch to share that not just one but both of the pieces I entered in the Quinte Arts Council "Expressions" show, you can find out which pieces I entered here, both garnered Honourable Mentions from the jurors. Oh yes, I'm just grinning from ear to ear.

So I do beg your pardon but I need to get back to work. I'll be posting this week and next but it will be sporadic... just thought I'd let you know so you don't think I've dropped off the face of the earth.

You know, because that sort of thing happens so often to artists. ;)

It's gotten even better since then...but I'll wait until the next post to share the fortunate news! ;)
