Busy day. The festival was a blast – less of a turnout than last year, but still a total treat to celebrate Samhain by putting on an event like this. We ate a crazy amount of pumpkin pie and enjoyed ballet from Caitlyn Carradine and incredible music from my friend Jim Connolly who is one of the best human beings I have ever known. I really enjoyed dressing up as a dirigible captain!
My students displayed their work in one of our spaces that works pretty well for exhibiting paintings, even though classes are held in there regularly. They were fabulous! Their challenge was to produce seven large oil paintings in time for the festival. I am really impressed by the work that they accomplished – really good quality. I’ll put up some pictures soon.
I delivered a pile of crows and ravens to the High Studio ready for the opening reception of the Dreamscapes show. I guess I end up with half of the gallery for this show, which is great. I’m still selling crows, and hope to see some of them move. (Need the money for some rather interesting bills that have materialized recently.)
