It is mighty fun to have an email, out of the blue, that says they saw a painting that they want for their wife's birthday. And, then to have the man send a down payment to determine the painting is not sold, before he can pick it up, as it in another show.
And, it is exciting to have a 7 ft. x 4 ft. (foot!, not inches) painting out on approval from a marvelous gallery that represents you.
And, it is exciting to have 6 paintings in pay out.
And, it is very exciting to get to judge a really good show. It is hung at the beautiful Eiseman Center in Richardson, Texas, right this moment and I will go tomorrow, May 2, and do the awards judging. Have already determined the 80 that will be in the show. And, I get paid for this great fun.
Below is the painting that will be a birthday present. 18 x 24, oil.
