One more thing. I am entering a juried show with an unusual deadline date. There are two first being January 11th and then a second one through the 25th of January for an additional ten dollars. I like that. They make money and artists have a second option. Wait a minute if they just made one deadline the twenty-fifth everyone would win. Yet another way to screw the little guy. Desperate artists trying to get the work seen and subjecting themselves to a slim chance in hell of being selected. John is insisting that I enter and He is right. They have no size restrictions, if the work is large you have to install it yourself but being a control freak that will make everyone happy. Listen to me thinking like there is a chance. Hey I'm very optimistic but I am also rational and I see the future. Thank you very much.
Back to painting. I am working and was thinking blah, blah,blah that maybe one of the reasons I do not talk about it so much is that it's all new and I feel like I am going by the seat of my pants. I made some major changes to my two 86"x86" paintings and while in the act I wondered if I would miss the way it was then looking at them and loving them more so I guess the decision to work some more was the right one. They are better paintings I think, assuming I know what I'm talking about.
I'm listening to a very drool banjo player who is playing live with other banjo players. He is brilliantly funny and makes jokes through out the show. I have to get His name. He just did an amazing impersonation of Bob Dylan. This guy is a gift.
