11" x 14" oil on canvas panel (made by Yes!)
I'm riding the bus to work these days. I drive three miles to the Park And Ride and take an express bus into town and back. It's great! It's just as fast and I'm saving over a hundred dollars a month in gas and parking to do that and the stops are as close or closer than the parking lot I was using. Today was the first day I used a little rolling cart to transport more things than I could carry. Just as I turned into La Villita, this still-wet painting slipped off the top and I rolled right over it. The girl had a tire track right through her forehead. If that isn't motivation to get busy right away and finish the painting, I don't know what is!
I had two great conversations today with two artists from Magnolia, northwest of Houston, and a photographer from St. Louis, and a few short, sweet ones.
