I did spend some time in the studio today even with a couple of grand kids here. Not the kind of time I would have preferred……..painting. But I did get a little accomplished. Cleaning up stuff…I’d been running around pulling out cardboard shipping boxes like mad the other day trying to find a solution to shipping the 36 72″ painting and along with it two others 48 x 36 and 24 x 30…….I could get them all in the one FedEX ground shipment if I packed carefully so they wouldn’t get out of the range of ground shipping sizes.

Anyway…….it was a big mess since, of course, I had to pull everything to find the correct sizes and enlist help from the ‘honey’ to get them to work for me. They are now in the hands of Fed EX with lots of finger-crossing that they make it safely to Seattle.

I got two older paintings in need of re-framing ….re-framed. Now to remember who wanted them. I threw out some stuff and by then had to go down to the house and check on kids and ‘honey’.

While I was doing all this, I was thinking about working on two paintings that are only 1/3 and 1/2 finished……and then there were the two canvases calling to me with their pristine white surfaces on the wall easel. Hum…and then there is the Fair Park show “Global Swarming” coming up…I need some encaustic paintings for that…images due Aug 1.

Lots to do around here.
