Art & the Airstream

I've decided I need to refocus on some things that I had put aside for a while. I've enrolled in an online class which deals with the business side of art. It took me four weeks after the start date to actually get started on it. This is the fifth and final week, although thankfully it is self-paced with a PDF book. I've been busy with making a Civil War costume and curating an Artists & Writers exhibit. Now it's time to focus on my art for a while and readying the Airstream for Feast of Tabernacles. Wonder if I can combine the two pursuits...Hmmm!

Whirlwish!
