Seawall, Hurricane Irene and Art Studio



I spent a couple days this week waiting to see what they were going to do about the Seawall Art Festival due to the impending hurricane. They cancelled it yesterday not to anyone's surprise. We will probably get hit but hopefully not too hard. I certainly have mixed feelings about the cancellation. I'm disappointed as it is usually a good show. But I certainly did not want to be out in pouring rain and strong winds.


So instead of preparing prints, cutting mats and framing paintings I started cleaning out my old art studio. Two years ago my grandson came to live in the room and now that he has moved out I get it back. I had been temporarily painting in my dining room but certainly missed my studio. The room is not done yet but I have completed a work area right in front of my window. It was such a pleasant place to paint and dream a little too.


I guess it's time to do all my hurricane preparations and batten down the hatches so to speak. I want to wish everyone in the path of Irene good luck and hope that the damage is minimal.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I took a look at yours and I just love the colors on the mare's mane. I tried to post a comment but it said it does not recognize my email address. I have to try and figure out what's going on.

Thanks Diana. I think I'm ready too. Now it's just waiting to see what happens. Oh well I think I might just paint!

Well we survived. I hope all is well with you and your family. I don't think is was as bad as they initially thought. Yes my studio is warm and very friendly. Now I just need to get the rest of it done!
