1. This is the busiest month of my year… preparing to teach and vend at Artfest next week, and then a six-day art show in Oklahoma City just three weeks later… I’m behind in my painting for OKC but now need to stop and concentrate on Artfest planning. It’s list-making time!
  2. I am teaching a class (“The Pony Express”) at ArtFIBERfest in October. The class offerings just went up here.
  3. I’m teaching three classes at Art & Soul Portland in October as well! A family portrait class, “Voice Lessons,” and “Drawing Blast.”
  4. I sent away for my passport yesterday… yay! India is really going to happen; I can scarcely believe it myself.
  5. Those of you who know me are wondering, “How the heck is Carla going to be able to afford a month in India?!!” Answer: I’m not sure exactly, (but am relying on the words of R. Buckminster Fuller — and it bears repeating: “You can rest assured that if you devote your time and attention to the highest advantage of others, the Universe will support you, always and only in the nick of time.”)
