Sunday's open studio

Sunday's open studio was a blast!  Before the afternoon began, we hung our work in the complex's gallery space.  
I fell in love with the monoprint on the right by Carlos Ortiz and before the day was over, I had purchased it.  I don't buy art that often these days but it spoke to me - loud and clear.  Carlos is a wonderful artist and I have wanted one of his pieces for years.  Hooray! 
Early in the afternoon, I had time to visit a few other studios, including Tom Nussbaum's, which is downstairs from ours.

When I grow up and get rich, I want this piece, below.
The traffic was nonstop - lots of friends and other artists -- and even some people I didn't know (who bought my scarves - LOL).  My friend Jacqui and her husband came by and she insisted on taking a photo of me in front of my work.  This isn't it - but I had to take a selfie of us just to prove that I could.
This is really a good picture of both of us and yes, you can see some of my work in the background.
At the end of the day, most of us were too tired to clean up. I left my stuff for today and went home.
No cooking - we went out to dinner, which was delicious (no pictures). But here is a photo of the front door, which I couldn't resist taking.  I should send it to Jessica for her "can you spot the error?" posts on Facebook.  But of course, you have to be pretty illiterate not to spot this one!

Today I was back in the studio printing scarves and honestly, it felt good.  Hope to get back tomorrow afternoon to print a couple more.

All in all, an exhausting/exhilarating weekend.

What a great show. I love the piece you purchased and the piece you made as well. The "Tinker Toy" looking piece that you would like to have is marvelous and I'm currently working on a quilt that is somewhat similar for my art group. Our challenge is "connections" and the first thing I thought of was my childhood and all the Tinker Toys I loved. Same with the Legos that we used to buy our youngest son way back when. I have happy holiday memories of putting his latest Lego set together with him while dinner was cooking. Thanks for sharing.
