I'm a woman obsessed this week. As with all precious things, rarity makes the cherry blossom season seem even more valuable. I've had a crazy weekend with our local dance festival, a late-night party at my house for 80 or so, and squiring around the band a bit, but I've gotten out to paint whenever I could.
I've got one or two more to scan in when I get a chance, but otherwise, it's the end of the season for me. I'm heading out of town tomorrow morning to paint a little at Shakertown, dance with my old Kentucky friends, swing by the nearest corner of North Carolina to pick up a proof press (!!!), and visit my sister on the way home. Elmore is kindly holding down the fort and taking care of the dogs for me. I'm sure the cherry blossoms will be gone in another week, and I'm afraid the dogwoods will too, since they're so crazy early this spring. I will do a little painting on my trip, though, to try to make up for missing such a beautiful week in Memphis.
I'll post when I get home, but in the meantime, have a lovely week and enjoy the spring weather.
