Mojito is in charge of making sure that Open Studios visitors spend an adequate amount of time admiring my artwork:
Actually, this is the slowest Open Studios I've ever seen. I don't know if people are too busy fixing their basements to go see art, or...? So far, though, I'm not even close to breaking even (the entry fee is about $350). Yikes. Really hoping next weekend is better!
Rumi seems to be doing quite well, which is wonderful. Although of course, the sudden change in food gave all three of them diarrhea... Ugh.

Oh, what a crowded couch...
And a quick video of Rumi getting moral support from his big brother, Mojito. Mojito--the dog!--is providing moral support by way of being super tolerant while Rumi rubs against his head over and over.
Rumi needed moral support because he had to go to the emergency vet this week. (Terribly expensive, ugh.) But he is doing better so far and seems to be on the mend now. He has developed struvite crystals in his urinary tract and they have been causing him a lot of trouble and pain.
(From what I can tell, the video won't play on iphone. It also appears to be running by itself, in a loop. I didn't tell it to do that!)
OPEN STUDIOS BOULDER 2013: This Saturday and Sunday, and also the following Saturday and Sunday (total four days), from 12-6 pm each day.
I am studio #15 on the map this year. Please stop by for a visit!
The Open Studios art exhibit in the main Boulder Public Library survived the flood (yay!) and there is one piece there from each artist (over a hundred) from now until Open Studios is over. The library reception is Friday evening, Oct. 4.
I'm a painter (and writer and Spanish instructor) living in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. I studied classical art in an ARC (Art Renewal Center) school, Colorado Academy of Art, full-time for two years, in order to benefit from the rigorous atelier-style training. I am currently dedicated to exploring abstract and semi-abstract art, working in oil and also in soft pastel. I firmly believe that all human beings are creative, whether or not they have yet found an outlet for the innate creative urge, and that the creative arts are the highest form of human expression.
