Tucson Artists' Open Studio Tour (April 16th & 17th) Ustreaming!

It was a hoot and a half chatting with all of our visitors today during the open studio tour.

I did a live webcast, on Ustream, for about 30 minutes this afternoon, and I'll try to do the same tomorrow, around 1 PM:
A moment at Fuerte y Claro Whoo!

Had a quick painting demo going on, and a visitor and I painting in collaboration. More on that later.

We also had an impromptu jam session with my music mentor, Ruben, at the end of the day and Mr. Arty Fice opened a bottle of wine.

I think some people had a good time...

If you're in town, hope to see you on Sunday. If you're not, I hope I can offer you a virtual visit tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and for all the good wishes.

Dagnamit, I hate it when there's a party going on and I can't get there!

Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun - cheers :o)

Loved the wee slideshow - great paintings AND you're cute. Such talent ;o)

Hi Melinda,

It sounds like you were having a great time, and the slideshow of your work is beautiful. Just love how you paint. I so wish I could have been there.


Donald Diddams said...

Sounds like it was plenty fun! Sorry I missed it and the webcast, too... I would have loved that. Anyway, congratulations on another round of public exposure. You deserve it!!

Melinda said...

Ha! Thank you, David. It really was a two day party with people who love and appreciate art. Today, I'm totally trashed...

Yeah, gosh durnit, y'all shoulda' been here.

Maybe someday....

Melinda said...

Hey, Barbara! Thank you so much for having a look at the slideshow. I take it you didn't see the live webcam event?

I've still got to learn how to do it.

Thank you so much for your kind comment. I'm sure if you'd been here, it would have been even more fun!

Melinda said...

Ah, Donald, it was kind of nerve wracking to have a live webcam going. I'll try again in the fall.

How I wish you and your wife could have been here! We would have had a blast visiting with you.

You are closer now, though...Hmmm

Thank you so much for stopping by and for being so encouraging. It means a great deal to me.
