. . . since this year's Natick Artist's Open Studios, and I think I may be recovered enough to share the experience!! (if ever so briefly)
|Provocative (Rope Dress) held court in the hall|
After much muttering and procrastinating (anyone who reads my facebook artist's page may have seen some griping about needing to clean my studio) ~ I had a wonderful open studio!!!! Many familiar faces came by to see what I was doing and to get some peanut M&M's!! A great success even though I really didn't get my studio very clean!!! I know the chaos did 'scare'' a few folks off, but those who were brave enough to enter, LOVED what they saw ~ a real working studio!!!
|creatures in their different states of display|
I had many interesting conversations and fabulous comments on my newer work - my creatures and my wall painting that I began at the Vermont Studio Center.
I had my creatures greet visitors as they entered my studio.

|a bit of an idea of how messy most of the studio was!!|
There was much positive feedback about my wall painting that I started at VSC this past March. It was fascinating to watch visitors stand in front of this piece and just get lost in it's magical world. there was some discussion about me painting a wall in a house like this, which I would LOVE to do!!!
|series of Carbon Footprint Dresses with Poetry Dress|
And I also was able to show all my carbon footprint dresses that I have done this past year. These too got a lot of attention. And, of course, I created a NAOS 2011 carbon footprint dress!

And I also rolled out my newest greeting card to much, much success!!! Still working out all the details but I hope to be able to offer these on Etsy or my web site, soon!!
So, all in all, it was an exhausting yet exhilarating weekend ~ full of insightful conversation ( where is the creativity in the carbon footprint dresses?), joking, 'footprint'ing, exploring the mess and lots of fun.
I thank everyone who stopped by during such a beautiful Fall weekend & for those who didn't, there is always next year?!? :) peace
