Today I spent the morning packing up some paintings for shipping, repairing a piece that a client's dog jumped on, framing a piece and getting them all ready to ship. Not the glamorous part of the art job, but a definite part of the whole equation.
Then after a trip to my local gallery, Angel Fire ArtSpace, to drop off a few new pieces and over to Monique's to get my hair dolled up, I managed to go back to the studio and smoosh in a night sky on a piece I'd sketched out before we left for Chicago. For those of you not in the know, "smooshing" is the way I blend the darker colors over the lighter and get the color as close to the stars as possible. All in all a productive day.
