IT'S DERBY WEEK! (and yes I'm screaming!)
So here's a few of the things I did today:
Unpacked my suitcase from this weekend's dance competition (SO inspiring!). Intended to repack, but got sidetracked by child with flu. Lysoled entire house. Three times.
Made chicken soup. The aroma made me feel better. Sick child wanted none of it. Neither did children-who-are-healthy-for-the-moment. Didn't take it personally.
Escaped to get a pedi and a mani. After all, I will be signing 100s of Kentucky Derby posters this week, and I have to look professional. Well, now that I think about it, it IS professional for an artist to have paint under their nails as opposed to on top of them.....
Shipped out drawings and sketches - no other shipments will be leaving the studio until next week. Also shipped new equine inventory to Spa Fine Art. All of my galleries have a beautiful, deep selection of inventory going into May.
Admired my Derby necklace (it arrived over the weekend, and I wore it with my paint smock. It really snazzed things up!). Seriously, if you want something special, PLEASE consider Tippy Stockton.
Worked a bit on the recital program for the dance studio (have you ordered your poster yet?)
Collected my repaired Derby dress (daVinci ATE the tulle underlayer, and lived to talk about it, in case you missed that news) from my most spectacular seamstress. Made an excellent plan to pay her back, too (sometimes $$ just isn't enough!). And can I just say for the record that litter box scooping is not any more exciting when punctuated with red tulle?
Built my itinerary for the week, which includes farm visits, dinners, mint juleps and flip flop wearing at Churchill Downs!!
Now I'm off for a little reading with my favorite non-dress-eating cat. Tomorrow morning I hit the road - you can follow along here.
I will try to post updates to the blog during the week as internet connectivity presents itself.
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
