Well, February is almost over and I've had a busy, kind of stressful month.
"Stressful!?" you say?
Yes. Mainly from not having enough time to paint and post. I haven't even sent out my February E-news, which won't happen now; I'll have to skip it and just do March. Charlie here I've been saving for a rainy day when I might have time to post, if not to paint.
I have to admit I did have a profitable 2 1/2 weeks at the San Antonio Rodeo sketching quick portraits... for the 19th year (Oh my goodness I don't like adding that up - I feel old!) But now that's done and I can get back to what has become my ordinary life of ferrying my kids around to school activities, email, karate class, and painting when I have a spare couple of hours. And this weekend I have nothing on the schedule, which means... Studio-Time!! Yay!
(Either that or cleaning out the garage, which has become quite a mess since unloading all the Rodeo booth stuff...
No, the studio is calling!)
Meanwhile: here are progress shots of Charlie!
(Charlie is available unframed for a limited time. Framed, he will sell for $550 at the Bayou City Art Fest in Houston at the end of March.)
