|Andrea and her sweetie|
The other end game is:
I am retiring from Adirondack Artists' Guild as of the first of the year. I have been with the gallery for twelve and half years. The Guilders are my extended family. I will miss the process of working with others, leaning on friends when in need. The coop is a fine structure for learning about human nature. The framing of Face to Face and other commitments will make being a coop member too stretched for me. I will be focusing on my studio work, fundraising and framing for Face to Face. I will still be showing off my work on my studio/gallery wall so do check it out.
|Chris - Yes I did get him to sit!|
It still scares me every time I sit down and look at a person. It is not like the landscape painter who says "I can move mountains." Noses belong in a certain place as do eyes, smiles, ears and foreheads. Not everyone is ready to sit, for the process is just as unnerving for the sitter. Eye to eye! When was the last time anyone asked you to do that? It has been a big deal for all concerned.
For volunteering, for sitting still, kinda sorta, and participating in the process, I can not say thank you enough to all of those who sat. Thank you.
See you in Saranac Lake! and Gabriels.
