I am finally back in the studio today and working on the 3rd & 4th major commissions for this year. The writing is cutting into painting time a bit, but that should all level out pretty soon. I was distracted by Mardi Gras, but it all helped put together this year’s theme. This year is going to feature “Stages”. You’re going to love this, so watch closely now.
I have been putting together a show tour for this summer. I was thinking about severely cutting back, but I am now more opimistic than I was last year. I will be doing shows this year, but not as many. I love seeing all of you at the shows, and I want to see all of you at the shows – I just don’t want to see some of the shows themselves, especially the circus traps. This year I want to be part of the smaller shows where I can visit with you and others that love art more than juggling turkey legs and kettlecorn in my booth. As usual, I will not post my schedule, but I will keep you up to date as much as I can. Send a note if you have a question, mmkay?
As I said, I am back working on some commission paintings this weekend. This song is shaking the walls while I get some honest work done. I was always fond of it. Truth be told, I never cared much for the taste of alcohol. But, that never stopped me. I was a well-seasoned binge drinker until my kids were born, so I am well acquainted with the lyrics of this song playing in the studio tonight: http://youtu.be/VT-SFgkVlno. I hope you enjoy it. My youngest graduates next year, maybe I’ll take a step back to that lifestyle.
