On The Other Hand...

Maybe not so dumb after all. Had I been in route to Miami, I would have missed an emergency gallery call today. Seems they managed to sell the same painting twice, and YIKES, is there a way to get another similar painting before Xmas. No way if I'm in Miami... no way if I'm carrying out a traditional, highly decorated kind of holiday (which I'm also trying to ignore.)

But... sure, I can do that! I just happened to have a 24x72 canvas in the works (they only need 24x60 but will take the extra foot.) Actually, I'd already begun a bokusho painting on it but it wasn't going anywhere so it's now wiped out and ready to start afresh.

As a bonus, my remarks about being bummed out for not going to Miami were picked up by Culture Grrl as a link back... maybe I'll be famous! I won't link this time, don't want to appear to be gushing! See previous post for the link. So... maybe my hermit habits aren't so debilitating after all. That said... I know they're all sipping wine near the pool now, palm trees swaying in the breeze. I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, I can even smell the salt air... ummm... drat!

we can pretend together to be there. i'll even pretend to paint the 24X72" inch canvas if you like so's you can get more pretend winesipping time in. maybe a clown with a big (barn) red nose. a Karen J. original.

It's a date, Flee... thanks for stopping by and offering to help ;-) BTW, I painted a clown with a big red nose when my baby was still a baby... he's now 36 yrs old. But thankx for that memory, too!

Will be in Atlanta tomorrow (Sat) for a day of galleries while DD#1 is in a book workshop. Are you ready for delikvery yet?!!

Geeze, Annette! I've already committed to pretend wine sipping with Flee ;-/ Wish I could, but best work through the weekend with the current challenge. An Atlanta gallery run would be good Miami pretending as well, wish I could.
