Not Enough To Do

Layers, 2006, Oil on Panel, 16x20

Just a short note today as I have a very busy schedule today. Doug and I have to attend an IEP and review meeting for our oldest son, who is a special needs student. He is adopted (he is actually our nephew), and over the years we have had to learn to be firm and often bitchy advocates for him. His school placement has been fine until this last year, so we have to go and insist that we look at different options for next year. This is the kind of stuff that drives me crazy, paperwork and debating school officials who, while they have good intentions, do not really want to spend any more money on my son.

Then I have to get back to the studio, paint frames, do the paperwork, then frame up about four of the eight paintings that I have to deliver to Gallery 100 in Saratoga Springs on Friday. Also, since I will probably be gone most of the day on Friday, and that is my all important underpainting day, I should really try to do them today as well. Oh, and I have to go to the kid's book fair at their school in the afternoon. Yippee.

Wednesday I had an interesting afternoon involving a figure drawing class and my favorite place ever, Woodstock, NY. My post about it is in the works and will probably be up on Friday.

Surely that will be super fascinating to everyone.



Ok, I take back my last blog where I said I didnt have time to make boxes.

Don't feel bad-I didn't get to doing the underpaintings.
