Nice weekend

This last weekend was very nice. If you didn't make to the Guthrie art walk, I'm sorry to say, you missed out on a wonderful event. It all started on Thursday actually. When I got to the gallery to deliver my work I was excited to see the space. I have a confession to make I really expected this gallery to be less than par. That sounds bad but this is a new gallery and it take a while to get most galleries up and looking good. I was happy to see this one has a very nice look. If you get a chance in the next couple weeks go. I mean it go! I have never seen my work look so nice and laid out. It's beautiful how well the show flows. Okay on to the actual day of the show. The show went well. I had a lot of really pleasant conversations with people. We sold a few things and the food was delicious. After the show we strolled down the street to "Byron's". It is this tiny concert venue where extremely talented music is played. I was blow away but these two kids that could pick like nothing I have ever seen. I am told that this little place is a well kept secret in this little town. Nationally known "Byron", I'm sorry but I don't recall his last name, has recorded with such names as Rod Stuart, and the Rolling Stones. This venue manly plays bluegrass, folk, and Texas swing, all of which I'm not a huge fan, but when something is done at this level of talent you can't help but be impressed. What an amassing night. Then Sunday I finished the commission I was working on and spent the evening watching the weather. A pastime here in Oklahoma. Around midnight I collected some nice size hailstones. I know I'm such a kid at heart. That was it, my weekend.

New Commission

Well, St. Patrick's day came and left. Now it's the day before Easter and here I am finely. I have been working on a couple different projects, but I was contacted about a commission so I had to put them aside foe the time being. It's probably for the best the piece I was working on needed a break anyway. Now the commission I'm working on is really working. I feel fantastic about it. It's turning into one of my best works yet.

Headlless chicken on the loose

I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. That's kinda sick if you really think about it. Well anyway I have been running here and there putting out fires. I did have good news besides all this though. I am officially in the Festival of the art OKC. My booth will be 15C. I was on the wait list and was pretty sure I was going to get in but now it's confirmed. So be looking for me I will be the headless poultry running around.

Back at it

Well I'm back and I'm back at it. I've started a new tropical interior. I'm going for kinda a Caribbean feel on this one. Time will tell how it turns out.

I've taken a well deserved brake. I decided to visit my cousin in Dallas. I have another cousin from Denver that will be down here for business so it's perfect timing. It is a nice chance to get away.
I realized on my way down here how much I really enjoy traveling. As so as I hit that highway I felt free. I guess it's that allusion of independence that gets to me.

The AKA Show

Well It was a cold one last night, and I would like to thank all of you that braved the cold to see my show. It was a nice little gathering of loyal art goers. I don't blame anyone that stayed in because of the cold though it was brutal. Don't let that keep you from seeing the show though. Get out sometime this month and see it. It really looks good.
