ALL BOGGED DOWN . . .

Glug . . . gulp . . . . choke . . . .

That's the sound of me, trying to keep my head above water right now!

Once I passed along the ViewPoint show duties at the Art Club I took on Membership, which I thought would not require as much of my time.

I happily spent a good chunk of  December painting . . . then January rolled in and all of a sudden, I feel like I'm drowning.

In addition to the Membership duties at the Art Club, which requires a monthly meeting in addition to some day to day work, I agreed to help with re-wording the Constitution.  Then I agreed to help out the Club with getting a new gallery space up and running at the Pendleton Art Center in Cincinnati.  All of a sudden, that's a top priority and I've become the "go to gal" for typing!

I was elected President of the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society which takes effect in March, but before then I'm also typing that constitution!  I'm also Membership Chair and update the blog.

All of the entry forms are coming in for the spring shows and I've got two local shows to take my work to at the end of next week.  Plus, classes will be resuming soon.

Good grief, this turmoil must end soon or . . . .

So, I may not be posting as frequently for a while until I have a chance to climb up out of this quicksand I'm mired in.

Don't give up on me, I'll be back as soon as I can!
