Packing it Up

I am going to give you a peek behind the scenes in the studio. I am starting to get my art ready to go to Reno for a solo exhibition I am having that will be at the Metro Gallery, in October. This packing is not glamorous stuff. It is organization and paying attention to the nitty-gritty details.
