the demise of the open studio.....
Saturday was a GORGEOUS day with today looking even better.
I am going to be honest with you. Here at this blog you really only see the tip of the ice berg, but here is a little more iceberg.
I love having people over and it happens all the time. For four-five years people have asked to visit the studio, every WEEK. So many that I started open studio days. I figured it would be nice if people could count on open days, but what I get is this:
me: "I have open studio Saturday!"
they: "great, I am coming over Friday"
Which is fine. But on a nice day like yesterday I feel like a chump. I want to come and go and walk my dog and work then wander off, whatever, AND the kind of visitors I am getting on open studio days is like, well, tourists looking for snacks and a bathroom and high schoolers sent over to do a report on a working artist AND van loads, I kid you not, of juvenile delinquents taking a field trip. I don't think they have stolen anything much. I hope.
I also don't have insurance to run this studio as a store.
If you want to come over, give me an email :)
