We woke up to a fresh blanket of snow the other morning here in Rutland. Vermont in the winter is one of my favorite things, and being greeted with fresh snow after only a short time here is a welcome start to things.
Tonight, Miss G and I went to the opening reception at the Chaffee Art Center. Not only was it the reception for the Winter All Members' Show, but it was also awards night for the gingerbread house contest which they hold every year. It was very festive to see the little town of gingerbread houses nestled beneath the fine art on the walls, and everyone was in full holiday spirits.
The second Friday of every month is Arthop here in Rutland, and Gabriella and I made the rounds of all the other galleries to introduce ourselves and talk with the other artists from the area. Everyone here has been open and very giving so far, and I feel very much at home.
My studio space is still in disarray, but I am very close to getting back into work mode. In just a week and a half, we have managed to get most of the house in order, and now our focus is getting back to work. By next Thursday, I hope to have to new work to show you.
Until then, thank you for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
