The summer seems to be rushing by. I think it feels like that because we haven’t really had any summer yet. I know, I know, some of you have been having REALLY hot weather, but we’re pretty cold here on Dartmoor. I think the faeries are still wearing their winter cloths (I know I am!).
Brian and I have been busy working on the newest book we’re doing – I’ll tell you more about that later in the Autumn, and getting ready for our trip to Portland. We’re doing SO much this time - all of it exciting and fun!
We’re flying in to Portland next week through the 7th of September. We'll be attending the grand opening of The Fernie Brae Gallery on Friday the 28th from 6-9pm. We’re SO excited about seeing this beautiful, new gallery, devoted to Faeries and magic come to life! It’s going to be an extremely special beginning for a most magical and special gallery! We can’t imagine a more perfect venue for our art and that of all of the faery and magical artists who will be participating in the exhibition. We’ll be holding a book signing there as well on that Saturday the 29th from 2-4pm.
We’ll also be signing books at Powell’s City of Books on Burnside on Wednesday the 26th at 7:30pm.
As part of the Portland Film Festival, I'll be attending and speaking at a screening of Dark Crystal on Wednesday, September 2nd at 5:30pm at the Mission Theater.
The weekend after that (we DO get some time off to enjoy being with the family!) we’re all off to the new venue of FaerieWorlds for Friday the 4th, where we’ll be around to see everyone and sign books (we will not be selling books). We can’t wait to be back at the festival again. It’s been far too long since we’ve had the chance to visit!
On Saturday the 5th through Monday, Brian, Toby and I will be teaching a workshop at The Fernie Brae, combining all of our various skills and work methods. We’re really looking forward to it. It’s sold out but I’m sure we’ll be doing it again sometime during the coming year so if you’re interested, keep an eye out for announcements.
So – it’s once again a busy summer for us. We hope to see lots of you at some or all of the events!
