Santa Fe Here We Come (and other stories)

It's Sunday, Yay! And the rain has stopped, so I am off on a run and then cleaning my car for my trip to Santa Fe tomorrow. Yes, my friend J and I are FINALLY going! I have spent at least 40-50 hours getting some beautiful Cd's ready to take and I even designed some lovely CD labels for them. I even got my hair cut! I am ready and I am expecting to have FUN. Other than that I have no expectations. I go to Santa Fe to hunt down galleries about once a year, but it has been more like 3 years this time. Breaking into the Santa Fe galleries is very close to trying to break into New York galleries, so what I am saying is, it is not a sure thing, but it is possible. I believe in miracles after all. I also believe in my work and myself. I am a damn good artist :-). I have a list of galleries, some I have tried before, but J and I will play it by ear and use our intuition. We are also bringing actual pieces of art with us, just in case. My work does not translate well in photos. They are WAY better in real life. Also planned for the day is a lovely breakfast with my friend K and then after the gallery hunt, we will be going to Alexandra Eldridge's Studio!
It may rain, but even if it does, it won't dampen my spirits :-). I will take my camera and if I get permission I will photograph the whole day for you.
In other news, I received my book finally "Busting Loose From the Money Game", I will tell you that I feel I have gone down the rabbit hole and now I know what those coyotes were telling me.
I will explain more later this coming week as I want to do a post about it.
Have a wonderful, care-free Sunday! And please say a little prayer for J and I tomorrow and also for my dear mom, who is still having a lot of pain in her leg.
Love you. XOXO
