Catching up With Summer!

It has been a busy and eventful summer! I've been enjoying the beautiful weather, visiting friends, working on an assortment of printmaking projects, and recovering from a hectic school year. Well now it is almost time to say goodbye to summer vacation, and get my brain back into teacher mode again.
Lori and I had a good day on August 3rd at the "Uncommon Art on the Common" Art Fest. After a few drops of rain at the beginning, the day turned out to be a pleasant one for an outdoor event. We set up the tent and tables with the assistance of our ever helpful husbands, and were pleased to see a steady stream of visitors throughout the day.

Last week, I attended the award ceremony at City Hall in Manchester for the "National Arts Program" sponsored art show for City and School Department employees. It's always a well-received show for artists of all ages and levels. I was happy to receive a 3rd Place Award for the "Pinkham Notch" reduction block print that I recently finished.

It's hard to say goodbye to the less scheduled days of summer, but the rhythm of the seasons makes them even more sweet!
