I'm so not ready for the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours this year. This fall has been a non-stop roll of too many things going back-to-back. Good things (getting married, exhibitions and more), but, yeah, a lot going on at one time. Something had to give and this time it's been my preparation for this weekend's festivities. I usually do a lot more self-promotion than I have and I'm behind with some new works to have up. I'm not going to worry too much.
Earlier this year, I was considering not participating at all, but I thought that wouldn't be a good idea since POST is growing and it's a good tool for promotion and letting the public get a glimpse of what goes on before the artwork winds up in the public or private realm.
I still have a couple of days, so I'm sure I'll get it together. I might even set myself up to be working when people come to the studio so there's more going on than usual during the event. I've done that in the past, but only to kill time during a slow hour one afternoon. It was actually a fruitful thing to do because a few of the resulting drawings sold during a show later.
Anyway, I'm off to bed. Tomorrow is going to be one of those days that I need a list to get through.
