Is it really the end of June?

Beth BundyComment

I am finishing up my grant cycle from the Regional Arts and Culture Council.  I have one last (on-location) photo shoot scheduled and my artwork is standing by, ready to be framed and sold in my online shop.  The grant cycle is the end of June so I need to be done with all of the work by then.  Where has the time gone?  

For the photo shoot, I decided to use my house to stage my artwork.  It has been a great excuse to get a few things for my son's room and my bedroom that I have been wanting for 5 years since we moved into our current home!  I finally found some great old matching twin bed's to go on either side of Stuart's window and I will frame several of the airplane, sailboat, and train designs to mount above each bed.  His response was amazing when he saw his new artwork.  "You mean I get to have ALL of those in MY room?!"  For my bedroom, I scored a beautiful solid wood birch countertop from the clearance section at IKEA to use as a headboard!  The varnish is drying as we speak.  Above the headboard will be a triptych of three different flower favorites, framed in these pretty linen frames from Pottery Barn.  

Planning the location of the headboard and frames by measuring and posting paper up on the wall.  Just a glimpse of what my bedroom will look like.

As for the online shop, it is still a work in progress.  I decided that I will choose the frames that I think the artwork looks best in so that I can showcase them in the shop and have them ready to ship pronto.  I have a lot of squares that need frames. Now I just need to find the time to frame them!  

I am also wrapping up the grading for my online Digital Photography class so be on the lookout for a beginning of July shop opening event.  Summer is here!  Now, if the sun would just come out.
