Running

I have been busier than usually for the last couple of weeks. Finishing all other projects, I had no time for painting. Somehow however, I found time for running! Since I need something to keep me motivated, I signed up for the last race this calendar year, and actually I won an award!

 
 
 
 The day of the race was also the first day of a cold weather. I was glad I took all my plants inside the day before. The temperature dropped horribly and overnight I went from T-shirt to woolen sweaters, scarfs, and hats. For this reason, I was very happy to receive a package with my 5-finger woolen socks a few days earlier than planned! Regular socks do not fit into Vibram 5-finger shoes. Although it may be seen as a lame excuse, this is why I ran in traditional shoes during the race: had no proper socks and it was too cold to use Vibrams on bare feet. You probably could use ANY 5-finger socks but since I run long distance (over 6 miles), good quality is super important. Well, unless I wanted to get some ridiculous and painful blisters!!!!

Great Loss

Leonard Cohen was one of my favorite artists... Huge loss.




Probably going to sit and cry...

Opening Reception

Opening Reception night!
It was perfect. The gallery did a great job, I was really impressed. So many people! By 9 p.m., I almost lost my voice from all this talking but I did enjoy it. Everyone was super-nice and supportive. Sold some works already- yay! - so now the plan is just to relax and focus on other stuff going on.
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
The Melting Pot provided snacks!

Done!

Today is somewhat slow. All my works are at the gallery and suddenly it feels like I have LOTS OF TIME.


 
 
 I cleaned. I also played with special effects a little.
 

 
But overall it was less fun than I thought it would be, so I went out and... raked some leaves.
Nothing like being productive!  :)
