This past month or so, I've been striking items off my To Do List right and left. Completed are all of the exterior repairs to my house; mostly siding - in addition to wear from the constant southwest exposure, a big wind picked up one of the closed patio umbrellas and thrust it into the side of the house, leaving a hole. I also had gate and deck repairs done. The garden is planted and producing; I've got peas and greens. Taxes are done, the brush is cut and ready for inspection - I hope that brush clearance inspection occurs before it rains again and everything re-grows. I even rehung a curtain rod that fell out of the wall during the residing project. It's up, but I'm having the dickens of a time getting the super glue off my fingers - just kidding! Sort of....
So here's a new list; a sneak preview of some upcoming posts:
1. Art Influenced by Motion Pictures - a switch on the recent series of Motion Picture Design Influenced by Art.
2. New sketches, recently completed paintings, and new work going to the gallery.
3. Holding work back for upcoming exhibits: pros and cons.
4. Where did all of my Cadmium Orange go? The mystery solved...
5. A further look at the effects of growing older on artists and their work.
