That Time Of Year...

2010 - PARTITION - 24x60

We're coming up on my favorite spot on the calendar... a new beginning... everything falls back into place and routine can begin again without interruption.

Still no word from the mystery project mentioned in previous post... I know she's out of country but in her position, I'm certain a smart phone is at her disposal so I must assume the inattention is intentional. No problemo! I've got plenty to do and this wagon has been on hold for too long. In that *the project* and *the holidays* coincided with *the doldrums* and *the crashed website* the studio has probably grown cobwebs and unemptied buckets of paint water have undoubtedly turned to... well, nevermind... a good studio cleaning always stimulates the urge to paint.

The new website is up and running... still a number of pages yet to be properly tagged but it's always been a work in progress... evolving into as much a scrapbook as a business portfolio. Stats show that some visitors do like to wander around in the archives to see what I was up to before gray hair.

So, like a swimmer on the starting block, gingerly finding the proper footing, shaking out tight muscles and taking deep breaths before the gun goes off... I'm preparing for another studio surge, a routine that will take me through the winter and into the final lap before the April show in New Orleans. I'll try to ignore the fact that I could man a decent show next week, given time to pull in some of the better work that's spread around in other galleries. There are some good paintings dancing like sugar plums in the back of my imagination... they need a chance to show their stuff as well.

So Happy New Year... we'll see you down the road...
