Just Babbling


Close Purple Trees, 2006, Oil on Panel, 12x24


My meeting at the gallery went well yesterday. Although I left thinking that I had really started to babble towards the end. I tend to do that if I am nervous, comfortable or if I am talking to a real live person. So, most of the time I babble I guess. I have probably always talked too much, but it's definitely gotten worse since we moved out here. My contact with other humans has been reduced significantly and whenever I see someone I am likely to talk their ear off.

Anyway, the gallery director is really excited and enthusiastic about my work and I am really happy (and intimidated) to be included with the artists that they already represent. Most of the artists have really impressive resumes, including museum exhibitions, international shows and sales to respected collections. I am not even close to having any of those things on my resume!

Today I have to work all day in the studio. I have the pieces to finish up for the gallery in Saratoga, as well as a few cityscapes that I have been working on. I also, and this gives me a headache just saying it, have to start gathering together all of my receipts and tax info together to give to our accountant. I have been trying to get to it, uh, since January, but today really has to be the day I start. Unless we decide to file for an extension of course. Then it's party time for a few more carefree months.

Thanks, d-thinker, is this a compliment? I will accept it as one, however I assure you that my babbling can quickly turn into foolish babbling! I liked your blog, by the way. I was talking to a friend the other day and she said that I should definitely keep my hair color and that she had gray so she wasn't sure that she should color hers, but after she did it she liked it and was impressed that I have been coloring mine red with highlights for so long and......
