Crazy Days!

New Semi Hard Pastels from Richeson Available in sets and open stock.

Thank goodness for weekends! We may get a few moments of down time. That said, unlike years ago when I worked in a bank, you just don't walk out the door and forget work until Monday in a family business.

This weekend is no different. We are going in a hundred directions! My brothers Mike and Darren left our factory at 5:00am yesterday morning with a van loaded with supplies. Our company is a vendor at the Art & Learning Show this weekend in Lisle ILL. Should be an exciting time working with Artist Instructors as well as talking with Artists about their work and our products. We are especially excited about our new Semi Hard Square Sticks of Pastels. If all goes well, they will get back to their families around midnight Sunday night and be back at their desks by 7am Monday!
We will be at the October show in Pasadena. Click on the link to the site to register. I will be in our booth at that show. Come by and say hello. Anyone mentioning this blog will get a free sample of our new pastel surface.

In our Art School today(Click link for upcoming classes) we are in day three of our Luana Luconi Winner Workshop. Luana is such an inspiring instructor. It is a real joy to have her at our facility. I love slipping down to the school and observing her teach. What an inspiration! This evening after class, the group will be heading to Jack & Linda's home for dinner and night of fun. Should be a crazy night. Click on Luana's website to see her work.

The highlight of my weekend...when work is finally done...I get to have three of my grandkids spend the night with us! Family...that's what it all comes down to at the end...Yours, mine...that's why we all do what we do!
