48 Things for my 48th Birthday
Decisions, decisions

Breaking news

Dsc08700_1_1You may recall that my eldest daughter, Katie, did a little guest blogging last month while I was away -- here and here.  She wrote of having submitted a drawing in an art show and crossing fingers...

SHE'S IN!  The graphite drawing at left will be in the Avant Grande Partner Art Show at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago on November 17th!!  It's a pretty cool deal and I'm so excited and happy for her, and so proud.  There's a chance that this could also extend to inclusion in One of a Kind.

The dumb way these things work, though, is that the work has to be hand-delivered on the 14th or 15th in Chicago and attendance at the actual event on the 17th is mandatory, which is fine, of course, but also in Chicago... it's not just a hop and skip away.  We never say, "Oh, I'm going to run down to Chicago today."  I think how it'll work is that Katie will do a day-trip to take the work down mid-week, and then she and I will both go on the 17th and make another long day of it.  It'll be a very long day, and busy, but so exciting, too.  It's a pretty big deal for my artsy fartsy girl!!
