How long did it take?

I often get asked, "how long did it take to paint that?"  So I created a page to address the question and explain, through pictures, the process of doing a painting.  Go to "The Process" tab on the menu bar.

The Crate Project

It's a good problem to have...shipping work off for exhibition.  But it is a problem, especially since I've never dealt with it before.  Oh, there was the time that I shipped a giclee out to McKenzie Bridge, OR, and got charged nearly $85.  That's when I decided there had to be a better (cheaper) way.  Back in March a couple of wood crates got shipped to the gallery and that got me to thinking.  So I went to Home Depot, bought some 1 x 6 pine boards, a sheet of thin plywood and a box of screws....and by 10:00 that night I had a magnificent crate!  It shipped out yesterday for $15 (FedEx marveled at my handiwork) and I'll soon find out whether it made it to the Mile High City in good shape.

Father's Day

I got my two-mile walk in today...just before it got too hot and humid.  Had just enough time to post the images on the Road Series page, and now it's time to make some apple crisp.  I'm missing my dad today.

A new look...

I've been experimenting with more options for my blog, trying to get it to act more like a website.  It's a beautiful day and I really ought to be outside!

More to come, but in the meantime, check out the separate pages.
