Got up at the crack of dawn, and went to our first Annual Hospice Sale
with friends... it was unbelievable! The biggest fleamarket in the Southeast! No air conditioning, so we all lost a few pounds. I got GORGEOUS ornate frames for art, great vintage tablecloths, another bigger, crazier mirror to cover in glitter for the dining room, and many yards of black, blue and royal purple silk velvet for about 50 cents a yard (as opposed to $20/yd). All cheap!
But the big news today is that I am finally allowed to announce that I have been awarded a NC Artist's Fellowship! $10,000 to increase my production in the studio, which means hiring an assistant, among other things. I am thrilled beyond belief.
I am so happy with the slideshow walk-through thing that I put up the Frost Museum Show
on Flickr as well. Looking forward to getting back to making some art this weekend.
