Six More Weeks

I cannot believe in six weeks I'll be in Seattle. Being able to go to Art Fest this year has been the carrot I've chased to get me through the past few months. I was in Kelly Rae Roberts' Flying Lessons online class last summer. She told how Art Fest was what really got her to decide to become an artist and to take a leap of faith. ( I am paraphrasing of course) When I saw registration was open I decided I needed to take the leap and go...just go. Do you ever get an instinctual feeling that something wonderful is going to happen? That's the way I've felt lately. Like this is the beginning of what I've always wanted to do. Make art.
I had forgotten how much I really enjoy drawing and painting. I've been sketching for the Sketchbook Challenge and I find myself lost in it. Here is one sketch I did for the February theme of opposites.

Apples and Oranges
I'm working now on ATC's and other trades. I'll share later as I don't want to give away any surprises. I suppose I should also work on how to pack one suitcase with art supplies and a little bit of clothing.


  1. It would be my dream to go there--I know that you'll love it! And isn't it wonderful to have art in your life!!

  2. Thank you Diane for your comment. I don't know what I would do without art in my life. It saves my sanity! Art Fest has been a dream of mine also. So I just decided to jump out of the nest and try flying.

  3. hi dale :)! yes, i will be attending too...i'm still in dream mode. am i REALLY doing this?! it's crazy! hope to see you there!
