Day Four

Well.... I needed to complete five paintings last night... got two large ones done... I am either tired and running out of creative steam, OR I am getting slower and dumber.....I am really not sure which is correct at this point, but I am sure one of you will tell me the truth.   

Howard Alen called today to say they are watching to see how much I sell this weekend.  AHHHHH... how sweet is that really.  I too, am anxious to see what happens this weekend.  I am ready to get out of town.  I have the Chariot parked right outside the door and need to paint three more 12 x 12s to feel like I have done as much as I can to make this successful.  HOLY COW IT IS TIME TO GO ...and I stilllll have paintings to do to fill my booth.  TYPICAL really.

Here are the two I did last night... WHOOOHOOOOO!!!!
This one is not quite done... will add some final touches to it today
24" x 48"

Just started doing landscapes with the palette knife...
18"x 36"
Okay, it is time to buckle down... well,... THAT was actually supposed to take place a few weeks ago and never really did..LOL... anyway... it is time to eat CHINESE with Deb and THEN paint a few more paintings to take with me.  I feel free today.  FREE...which makes me successful.  I don't do this for the money and I  sure a s hell don't do this to get famous.....I do this for the freedom...and today, I feel free.
