I'm back after spending the weekend presenting my art at Sash and Solder as part of the Button Factory Open Studios in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This year, Tom's studio has many more stained glass and sash windows in it, but he once again invited me to fill his walls with original art.
In addition to some work I hung last year, I had several new paintings up, as well as note cards and prints.
Also on display was my new companion book to the painting series The Thirty Million Dollar Suit That Never Gets Pressed.
Just like last year, amazing art hung throughout the Button Factory. However, I did not get much of a chance to explore as quite a few folks came by to see my own work. Instead I remained occupied with handing out business cards and answering questions.
My wife, Rose got to explore more than me, and she took this atmospheric shot out the window of one of the other studios.
Tom talked up his restoration services and, I think, even garnered some more work.
Meanwhile Tom and Heather's daughter, River, contributed once again to her college fund.
I sold several prints and notecards and had two customers actually search me out who had seen my work last year.
I am very grateful to Heather and Tom and hope to do it all over again next December.
