"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."
William Morris (1834-1896)

Going for the Gold......

We set up our display in our living room before packing because our work has been changing a lot over the last 3 years. We no longer have as many larger pieces to anchor the display. Our thought was that the practice run will save us some sloppy discussions after driving 6 hours to Baltimore. It also precipitated our buying new shelves (the old ones were splitting) and cleaning the rug thoroughly. The only question that remains is whether we'll have adequate lighting. Knowing that we usually have dark spots when we do a corner booth, we ordered a halogen light that extends beyond the booth and would allow light to shine in from outside. The light looks good and we may have solved the problem but the real test will be in the convention center on Monday when we set up.
The car is almost packed and we plan to leave tomorrow am. Sounds like the weather is holding for our traveling; however, Baltimore may get some bad weather on Wednesday and Thursday.
We will be settled by then but we are hoping the weather information is WRONG.
This is a wonderful show... 700 excellent craftspeople from all over the US... we always look forward to seeing our friends' and newcomer's work and catching up with the group. I'll send some photos along if I can....
