Other than submitting my art to the Calgary Stampede Western Art Show for next summer (wish me luck: they select the artists and pieces to display by March), I have had a restful holiday. Finished Among Others, by Jo Walton, a thoroughly enjoyable read, and started 419 by Will Fergusson, Read a little Asimov’s, and worried away at my traditional Christmas jigsaw puzzle. I only allow myself a jigsaw puzzle once
So, I have been working on larger pieces that probably won’t sell at the craft fair, but now I am thinking of submitting to the Calgary Stampede under their “Emerging Artists” section, and for that I need 4-8 larger pieces. So far, I have 5, but today, someone expressed an interest in purchasing one of them. So…you never know!
