You will very sadly miss out on an art update today, because I’m using all my free (read Pearl’s nap) time to send art requests for my upcoming amazing birthday art festival on November 8th. I am so very excited about this event. I did this once before a few years ago, and I can still feel the creative euphoria that night kindled. If you are an artist and you’re local (you know, in a state roughly adjoining Minnesota), please consider showing or performing some work at the event. If you’re not an artist, just come and soak up the artsy goodness. It’s going to be fantastic.
