In My Printing Apron

There is No Place Like Home…

Well, I have been traveling and I got home at the beginning of this week. Whew… I just did two art shows in Kansas but before that Ken and I spent two weeks in France…. (Paris and the South of France).
Right now, I have so much inspiration that my head is about to explode but I need to revamp my studio so that I will have room to work more efficiently. UGH.

I have decided that I am going to take a break from doing art shows and see what kind of work I will make without the pressure of having to get ready for hitting the road with a van load of art. Coming back from Paris, my urge to work large is intensified. Coming back from Kansas, my passion for rural women and their toughness is confirmed. So I sort of have a plan….

While in Kansas, doing my last two shows (at least for the next year), I was quite pleased to have won two awards…. IN the Prairie Village Art show near Kansas City, I won Best of Show…. quite the honor since I have never had that happen before.

And then in Salina, Kansas at the Smoky Hill River Festival, I won a $500 Merit Award.… I loved the idea that I was backing away from the Art Show world on a high note….

I will talk about Paris in my next post but right now, I need to undertake a massive revamping of my studio…. I left it in a mess when I rushed off to Kansas.

    Debbie – Congratulations on the award at the Salina River Festival. I love the painting I bought from you. I have framed it and I’m still contemplating where best to display it in my home. You have a new fan.

    Hey, look at you! Travel and awards – what could be better? Glad you had such a good time, and I’m really excited to hear about this intensifying passion for rural women. There’s no better subject – in my humble opinion. I’ll be anxious to see where you head in the future.

    Once you have your studio in order, your life likewise and are off in whatever direction, I’ve been thinking I’d love to come up, take some photos and do an interview/story. Sound doable? (Probably not until fall, though….)

    Happy revamping!

    Way to go, congratulations on the excellent recognitions! Sometimes going into exile for awhile pays off over the long haul, hope I find this to be true as well!
