How Not to Procrastinate - Allegedly.

Who knows all these folks? They are some of the very earliest sitters for Face to Face.
So there a a qazillion cool tools on the inter-web,  as Chris calls it - to set up schedules and announce events, calculate exercise and calorie intake. The list goes on… The one that got me is the tool counting down to November 12, 2015. 114 days to go til Face to Face opens in the library.

There are 48 days to go til the end of the online Adirondack Gives campaign that has been set up to help fund framing all 185 faces. It is 27% funded as of this particular moment.

I have lost track of how many people have stopped at my studio to pick up their gift for sitting last year - a full size digital portrait print for each person who sat for two hours - plus or minus.

Still early in the framing, there are 22 framed today - only 165 more to frame.

Stats and numbers are not my forte. I hate doing books but I am good at framing and designing a space to hang art. I do like schedules so this cool little tool telling me that there are 114 days left is a great prod for me to keep at the frame work.

"Yeah but you're writing right now. What's with that?" you say.

Good question.

This coming Saturday, July 25, is the first Last Saturday Artist at Work Studio Tour for 2015. Come visit an artist at work. Pick up your portrait print. See some plein air work of the area. Marvel at how much space 185 frames takes up.

AND… If you cannot make it Saturday check my website. The front page has studio hours posted weekly -

113 and 1/2 days to go…


  1. That is a good way to not procrastinate - a show deadline! What white did you use in the clouds of the landscape?

  2. Hmm, probably lights from Art Spectrum and darker from Mount Vision. Really no such thing as white in a cloud. I let the stick skitter across the paper to get wisps. Constable says to master landscape master the sky.
