Whew…. whirlwind trip to Houston from the ranch yesterday morning. I loaded up the SUV with work to show some art professionals I have been talking with…and my Hunting Art Prize painting and headed to Houston about 8 am. Being slow as I am getting ready to go anywhere the past few years, I had to get up at 6am..plus I ‘really’ woke up at 5am.
I got to the drop off at the art services company checking in the work for the competition just before noon. Little Miss Garmin Nuvi gave me all the directions. I did have a back up print out though, just in case. I then headed over to check out the location where I would meet with the consultant and dealer. I found it and figured I had about 3 hours to kill until our appointment. I guess the ‘great power’ was there to help me have a smooth day. I got a call within 15 minutes telling me the schedule was moved up if that was OK with me…. Yes – Yes, so we all met. I think they liked my work. I’ll be waiting to see how it goes.
Back home I headed by 1pm……………. 8 hours driving, 1 hour meeting. LONG DAY! but productive………..now to get all the work out of the SUV and back into the studio. I have new panels and canvases on order and they are ready. I’ll pick them up tomorrow. Nothing like being ‘prepared’ for anything.
That’s great, Cheryl! Sending good vibes for this new opportunity for you. Nothing more fun than having new panels and canvases! It’s like a big present to yourself. Have fun!
Thanks, Martha………….we are all rooting for each other. It helps.
Yay!!! I am crossing all digits and praying for you on the Huntington Prize, although I feel you need no help that is a fabulous painting! Glad the trip went so well for you. We will catch up at Colony!
