Only 7 Days till Open House!

It is a bit busy here at the Smith compound.  Linda is trying to get her garden cut down for winter after not being allowed to be in the garden all year.  I think she may be overdoing it.  She is also working on applying for her health insurance through the Marketplace and I am hearing strong language coming from her office.  Our show schedule and applications  for next year is laying on piles and several show apps are already due.  She had over 200 change of addresses to enter into the computer and October needs to be balanced to the penny.  And add to that, her Open House duties and a constantly ringing phone and lots of emails.  I am not poking the tired bear!!

Meanwhile I am still painting.  I have to finish everything up by Sunday night.  I have the last show of the season this weekend.

Artisan Fair
Held at Olympic Hall at Spooky Nook Sports Complex
2913 Spooky Nook Rd, Lancaster, PA
Sat. 10am-5pm and Sun. 10am-4pm

Open House Update:
Frames and supplies are still arriving.  Matts are still being cut.  I cut two cases of glass yesterday.  I have the cover put up around the side porch.  The porch has been scrubbed and a rug down.  Panels go up on Friday.  Furniture moved and the panels and lights are up in the living room.  Paintings laid out where they may go, subject to Linda rearranging them several times.  The start of grocery shopping for your hors d'oeuvres and a stop at the State Store for wine is checked off the list.  Yes, if you know Linda there is a list... a LONG list!  In fact everyone here gets a list!!  Only 7 days till Open House.

More paintings for your wish list.  Both are 14 x 18" and both are from Ireland although they look like they could be from anywhere.  None of the new originals may be sold until 2pm on Friday 11/16.  If you cannot attend but want one you may send an email or call promptly at 2pm when the show opens.  No holds!  Any prints may be ordered and shipped anytime!
