The art of patching walls

After the show comes down, I get to practice the fine art of patching walls. A little spackle, a palette knife (they work better than putty knives), and, well, minus the peachy paint I didn't have, the walls are looking darn spiffy.

Taking a show down, or what remains of a show after some of it goes home with other people, is maybe not so glamorous, but it's part of the job, and part of the creative cycle of a working artist. Next, for me, comes a little breather, some time to photograph autumn colors now that the vines are beginning to turn yellow and red (a bit late this year), and lots and lots of work to get done in and on my studio before the rains come.
