Holy Smokes!! I am so sorry to be away for so long--again--but it's been such a crazy month! It has gotten awfully busy around here and in order to simplify some of the clutter, I am trying some Spring Cleaning in that big closet of Life!
Much of this busy-ness is mostly due to my "other life," the one I live, away from the easel, but it is equally as folksy and magical. Some of you may know about The Beyond Vagabond Project, and I am currently waist high in the middle of it.
Right now I am writing to you from Florida, having just returned here from the holidays, seven weeks after I FIRST left. I am on an old-fashioned adventure to document a historic wagon train WITH horses, and then from there, I will be going to Iowa and Illinois to teach beekeeping, cooking, and various other mad-capped adventures (by the way, if you're interested in taking classes from me, you can find a whole big list HERE!
As you can guess, I am stretched pretty thin between prepping for these upcoming adventures, and art, and in general, I am coming back to the notion that I have to streamline THIS site in order to move forward, but I'm not sure?
I guess it's a bit of online Spring Cleaning--- I'm thinking of just putting up quick SALES posts of items and art as they become available, and then back-linking to the Beyond Vagabond site for actual stories of how they are made, so this (once again) would be strictly a sales only site, but how would you, Dear Readers, feel about this change?
I feel as though I'm heading to try to create an entire folk WORLD, between old fashioned horsemanship, antiques, folk ART, beekeeping, farming and general old-fashioned living, maybe there is a way to finally put this in one (or even just TWO) places..
In the meantime, I still have THESE folk art pieces at the PFATT Marketplace!
