What a long busy week this was. Not much chance to get to the laptop to post something.
The show at Indiana's Decorator's Show House went well. As mentioned I was invited by my good friend Kathleen Stevens invited me to participate in here sections of the house along with several other local artists. Kathleen did a fabulous job working her way through the muck and mire of this type of show to make it work for everyone. The opening for the participant was April 23 and it closes on May 9.
On Friday night and Saturday morning I spent a good deal of time at The Stutz Artists Open House located in the same building where they manufactured the Stutz Bearcat automobile. There are over 90 artists at The Stutz and the weekend drew over 8,000 visitors. I wandered the hallways meeting people and spending time with others who I only knew from this blog. As a side note the owner of this building is a car collector and one gets to see some classic automobiles located in various sections of the space.
On Sunday it was Turkey Run State Park - as much time as I have spent in Indiana over the years I never heard of this park - apparently there are some 400 year old trees located in the park. Unfortunately it rained quite hard so a short hike was about all that happened. Nice place to explore and definitely on the list for a return visit.
One more day in Indiana - home tomorrow. Not traveling until end of June when I leave to explore the coast of Maine - time to get some projects moving forward that have been slipping to the back burner - printing and website are high on this list.
The image above is from the Everglades trip. Another sunrise image from Chokoloskee. Thanks to Kevin Raber of Phase One (lives in Indiana and I spent three hours at his house on Saturday) for helping me see the power of the Capture One software last saturday - without his help this image might never have seen the light of day.
