The Tucson Artists' Open Studios Tour will be going on from 11 AM 'til 5 PM, Saturday and Sunday.

In my mind, I'm already there...and Ustream. My hope is to get things set up for painting by 1 PM on Saturday, MST (Mountain Standard Time). If things go well, and I'm not too tired on Sunday, I'll try to paint again at the same time.

The Tucson Artists' Open Studios event is a big deal here in the Old Pueblo. I'm looking forward to all who stop in!

I know that my fellow artist bloggers will be here in spirit, right?! I'll be thinking of you too.

yes - definitely there in spirit. Can we view it on ustream ?

Melinda said...

Hello Bridget,
How I wish you could be here. I think you'd like the region.

Yes, I really hope you can view it. If you click the link tomorrow, I believe you'll be able to see my studio. I'll have to check it in the morning, and will update as necessary.

I'll be smiling in your direction!

Melinda said...

Hello Marcia!
Oh, I am so happy you came by yesterday and today. I'm sorry that I didn't address you directly. I couldn't read comments some of the time, but heard that you were online yesterday.

Yay! Thank you so much. Wish you were here in person. Sigh. Maybe someday.

Virtual hugs from here.

t was lovely to watch you paint Melinda - gorgeous work!!!! - I caught a good 30 minutes of you in action wielding a palette knife - you make it look effortless - I would have greeted you but didn't manage to sign in. Nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation, you are brilliantly clear and a delight to watch. Oh yes, full marks to your handsome assistant!

xo, Marcia

Melinda said...

XO, Marcia! Thank you for your wonderful comment. My ego is soaring. :-)

I'm glad you liked the presentation. I'm hoping to improve more in the future. Must remember not to get too distracted by all the excitement.

That Mr. Artyfice was a wonderful assistant, indeed. A great job!

Warm hugs!
