Almost Fall

Fall is a great time of year here in Vermont, I am looking forward.

Had a great time wraping up Summer last weekend in Burlington. It was Art Hop weekend. Hundreds of artists in Burlington - realy amazing considering the small size of the city. The South End was ALIVE with art everywhere. Saw two artists with GREAT SteamPunk work. Yes, even in Northern Vermont SteamPunk is catching on. Nice to see.

Speak of nice to see, the leaves are just begining to turn. If you have a chance, come on up and see the Foliage - no better place to see foliage than Vermont.

all for now-

a long time

Yes, it has been a long time since I left a post here.

I had surgery at the end of July. The time leading up to surgery was very hetic, trying to get all of the ducks lined up - and then after, well it has taken a while to realy get back into the swing.

I just had my 6 week check up and my doc - John Macy, MD - says that my new shoulder joint is doing VERY WELL. So, NO MORE excuses!

By the way, if you need shoulder work done, and can get to northern Vermont, John Macy is THE guy you want working on you!

On a whole different subject - as an artist, it is always interesting to see how other artists work. "ArtSnark" is offering us an interesting look at all of this on her blog - a peek at artist studios. The current featured studio is the antithesis of mine - the featured studio is VERY neat and clean! Check it out:

More later, I promise!
