'I live on a rural road named "Dawnwood." And yesterday I posted a photo of what is a common occurrence early in the morning as I reach for that first cup of coffee and look out the window. So this afternoon in getting ready for the Philomath Open Studio Tour, I painted a small 7x7 memory of yesterday's sunrise. Makes me smile, and hope you are smiling, as well. Isn't nature amazing?
This time of year I tend to go into a tailspin as I watch the days fly by and the calendar between now and Philomath Open Studio Tour shortens. I have started a to do list which seems to be never ending.
It is amazing the behind the scenes work that each participating artist accomplishes not only in prep for their opening their studio, but assuring that each studio on the Tour is a unique experience for visitors.
Each year I have a guest artist and this year, Jennifer Lommers, will be here to share her work, her process and the story behind her amazing mixed media work.
Over 40 artists are participating in the 2018 Tour and you can get a preview of what you'll see along the backroads in and around Philomath, OR. Jennifer and I invite you to visit the Philomath Open Studio website.
Hope to see you on the Tour!
