Today was second Saturday Open Studios at Sabine Street Studios, and it was a really fun event. I think our building is filling up and becoming pretty awesome. Also, I was happy to get a lot of painting done. Meanwhile, the friends who were staying with me sent me a surprise picture of my dog lurking among the pile of clothes I had tried on and discarded on the chair in my bedroom (disclaimer: there is always such a pile of clothes in my room). The only fly in the ointment is the weather has suddenly gotten very very cold, and it’s supposed to stay like this for a while. Definitely not my favorite. I’m still hoping it might change before my West Texas trip.
