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.
