daily paint, December 3rd, 2007


We survived the yucky weather! As some of you were aware, Thieves Market was in Iowa City this weekend. Nothing, well, almost nothing, strikes fear in the heart of an exhibiting artist as much as a weather bulletin telling people to stay home, the roads are just too treacherous. Lovely. Saturday, most of the people roaming the building were artists. Sunday, the preciptation stopped and some brave souls braved the frigid wind and came. Yea! In the end, I sold several good paintings! What's the phrase about the obese lady breaking out in song?:)

At any rate, the art center parking lot had a lovely shine on it (by the light of the moon) tonight. Tonight was life drawing, but my organizational skills faltered (oh, right, what organizational skills) and we had no model. Heavy sigh. I promise to do better next week.

I do have the mannequins to show you. We think it's name is 'Vogue'. A lovely 20 x 40 inch gallery wrapped canvas, and you'll notice it's signed. Eh? (crazy artist!)

Later, Cooper

Visiting from your article on empty easel and noticed you were from Spencer. I used to visit Ruthven all the time; still have close friendships there. Just stopping in to say 'hello'

I was sitting on a runway in Milwaukee from about 1:30 until 2;30 on Saturday. Waiting for a 'break in the weather'
Now, I didn't want to stay in Milwaukee, but really should we take off in a 'break'.
I considered knocking on the pilots door and asking if we could take a vote about taking off, but decided to just trust him.
I mean, he doesn't want to skid off the runway into Lake Michigan any more than I did, right?
