I realized several things today.

#1 Although it was a good use of time to paint in my office on my lunch hour it's not the best idea. First of all now my desk has paint on it and my room smells like chemicals but mostly I learned that even though you sign out unless they see you get in your car and drive away fast they still bang on your door.

#2 I quickly figured out that my previous "Estebans" were large, 24 X 36 inches, and there was more freedom to swing my brush and give him the curved brushstrokes that his world is made of. This smaller version , 8 X 10 inches, was very constrictive. I like the opportunity to create smaller pieces that are done quicker but I'm going to have to adjust my process.

This little Esteban is under construction. Poor guy, one leg is painfully skinny. I'll post him again when he's done.

Back from Bike Week

Well we had sun but as you can tell by the way I'm dressed it wasn't very warm. Doesn't matter, the sun and clear skies were a blessing. We had a great time riding but now its time to get back to work.

Headed for sunshine!

Just wanted to let you know I'll be gone for almost two weeks. I've had as much of this cold weather as I can stand. Tomorrow we leave for Florida.
The picture I posted was taken on one of our beautiful Missouri fall days but that was so long ago I can barely remember what it was like. By the way , did you know you can't get Jack & Coke at a winery? Who's idea was that anyway?
Now back to the present - we have had ice in the drive way for over a month. I'm freezing!
So tomorrow we all head out for Bike Week in Daytona.
A week in the sun (I hope). I really need this - its been a tough winter.
I'd say I'll take pictures and share them with you know how it goes..what happens at Bike Week...never happened! Ha!
See you when I get back.
