Whew… it’s 90 degrees here at 5:30pm. I just got my SUV loaded for colony with a little help from my two helpers. The wind almost blew the canvases and panels surrounding my vehicle away… SO I had to load them a little faster and less thoughtfully than usual. It was a challenge to get it all in. I still don’t have my little cooler, and my clothes, etc. loaded. I guess the only place for them to go is in the front seat and floorboard.
I have now decided that low carb diet or not, next time I WILL NOT TAKE FOOD. It is a pain in the rear to try to haul food with you and it’s only a little bit anyway. One of the numerous perks of colony is not cooking…nothing but art talks and painting…sitting around with the best friends an artist could find.All those soft drinks are something I never take either… ah ha..the wine, yeah..not leaving that behind…OR the 9 canvases. After all I don’t know what I am going to paint so I need all kinds of sizes and orientations. I wanted to take something this time to enter in the show. I can hope that I don’t have to bring them back and that they will get in and lighten my load a little. I suppose I can’t stop and shop on the way across LA now…no where to put another ounce.
Yaaay, Mississippi Art Colony….Here I come…first thing in the morning!
I packed my art stuffs too….I still have to pack canvases. I may have to go back to watercolor and gouache…must less to pack for sure. I am still eyeing my oils and cold wax but I will leave them behind this time… I think maybe for the fall….who knows. I am getting pretty loaded too, and thanks for reminding me I have to bring back the painting for the last show….geez…guess it can fit on the roof somewhere….hahahaah just kidding! Drive safe and see ya tomorrow!
Ha ha…. will have to remember that in September if these get in the travel show………Think I will bring wax next time, too. See ya…
Y’all have fun, paint lots of wonderful things, and know that if I did not have my 5oth college reunion this weekend, I would be there with y’all. Pat has a high school reunion, so we both will be sitting around with a lot of old women, talking about our grandchildren….NOT…I will have the wine too, and both of us will be in Mississippi! Hope to see you in the fall, and know how much I enjoy seeing your wonderful work on FB. Also enjoy your musings on life and art. Tell everybody HI from Pensacola. xox Sandy
PS How did I get so old so fast?????
Hey there, Sandy. We will miss you both…. Cathy and I are going to spread out in your spaces. Last time I went to one of those reunions, one of the people there looked around and said, “who ARE all these old people”? ha ha ha……….old, not us.! Will be painting up a storm.
