The uber-talented Ms. Springer even put together this fabulous YouTube video about the upcoming CAST tours with specific details (times, dates, and location) and lots of photos of her work and mine. Please be sure to check it out even if you can't make the tour!
One of my favorite things to do in life is visit other artists' studios to see how they make their art and what tools they use to work their magic. I drool over their work spaces as much as I do their artistic offerings and generally come home with a desire to totally redo my own studio from top to bottom so that I too might improve my work by osmosis! But for now, I'm going to be satisfied with what I've got and promise to have it cleaned and ready for demonstrations for the CAST Open Studio tour on 9/15 and 9/16 from 11-5.
This will be my 4th year participating in the tour and let me tell you, it's a lot of fun. It will also be the first time I'm opening my home studio to the public and I've got to invest a little time getting things ready to make room for Joanie's display area and show my newest works including lots of glass jewelry, new beads and fused glass (and debuting my latest XMAS ornament!) plus of course, my abstract paintings. Here's a photo of a portion of my messy glass studio (formerly known as a garage).
