Deep Red Farm, 2009, Oil on Birch Panel, 12x24

I wish I had something exciting and fascinating to talk about here. Lately, each day has been melding into the next. There has been a lot of puttering in the studio, trying to finish up the last few paintings and tidying up. Spring is coming and so thoughts of vegetable and flowers gardens are on my mind and I am feeling very tempted to take a break from painting to focus on the outside work.

However, last year was a good long break for me and at this point if I don't want to get a day job, I must keep painting and get my work out to try and drum up some exhibition opportunities. Otherwise known as doing the hustle. heh.

So no break for me and I will be ignoring my upcoming post show meltdown too. I am going to get back to work right away on the People You Know series and will also start putting together info to send out in search of a new gallery.

Bleh! Why can't the gallery directors be calling me? That would save us all a lot of time and energy! heh.

I'm glad to hear you being positive about the future, because if we don't get our work out there, no one will ever know who we are. So thanks for the reminder to not slow down, make plans and carry through.

You know what the problem is Tracy - we aren't chatting about who you want to win American idol this year. I so love your comments on the contestants...........and who else am I going to talk to about who it will be?

BTW I reckon it's going to be Adam!
