In a continuing theme I have developed in my life, I am again multi tasking to the max.
One of the more unfortunate tasks I tackled last month was doing taxes. My brain has NEVER been constructed to handle numbers in the best of circumstances , but last year was a year in which I sold a home in New Mexico and bought a home in Colorado and that made my tax return even more complex and agonizing than usual.
But I am happy to report that the pain is over and I have been able to successfully extract the ax from my skull after I completed my 2008 tax return, filed it, and won't have to worry about this particular trauma again for a whole year! Yaaaaaaaaaaay!
So aside from tax traumas I am also working on at least twelve new assemblage pieces. My studio is a TOTAL mess. Chaos reigns...but then that's me!
I have finished my web site remodel and have made it much more viewer and buyer friendly with the ability to see full screen detailed views of my art (and even purchase my art it if you'd like!). So please visit at www.thepatstudio.com and let me know what you think!
Also...a while back I finished a piece to be auctioned for a very good cause. Rebecca Brooks has assembled a fabulous group of artists who donated art to raise funds for street kids in Oaxaca.
