Hmm.

I have a quandry. I am not going to Anthrocon, since I didn't reserve a dealer's table, but I'm being offered the space in the art show that I had last year. The art show is usually worth a coupla hundred bucks, which is enough for me to want to enter, but not nearly enough to cover the cost of getting up there and staying in a hotel.

So is anybody goin' up that way who'd want to act as agent? Preferably someone who's hung stuff at a con before and knows the drill? It'd have to be an absolute confirmed hell-yes-I'm-gonna-be-there, since I'd be mailing art to the hotel a coupla days in advance. Basically you'd just have to spend an hour or so on the first day hanging the art, and filling ou the paperwork, then another hour unhanging the unsold art, packing it, and mailing it back (I'd pay the shipping back.) There's no money and no particular glory, and generally it's a tedious pain in the ass, but I'd be terribly grateful and could probably be relied upon to scrape up a small art token of appreciation.

Failing this, I may also try a mail-in--they only take a limited number, so if I can get an agent I trust, I'd much rather go that way, but I may try it. But if anybody of sober and reliable mien is heading that way, drop me a line!

Having sold the Cardinal painting--to a very good home, I hasten to add!--I was thinking it'll be odd not to have it around the house anymore, since it's right in front of me on the wall when I leave the studio. So I was thinking about the cardinals, and the dogwoods are currently blooming, and I wound up doodling a quick little watercolor of a cardinal in spring. It's obviously nowhere near the complexity of the original, but it amused me.

Hmm. Auctions still up, put up some little originals as well that were cluttering up my studio space--generally stuff I wasn't quite happy with and so I had left them out to work on when I figured out what needed to happen, and then a few weeks slid by and they were just taking up valuable real estate atop the watercolor pile. So to auction they go!

And now that it appears I've gotten an agent for the Anthrocon art show--time to get to work on originals! Yaaaah! Once more into the breach!
