Man, I don’t know about you but getting anything done is nearly impossible. Writing emails, deleting emails, blogging, facebooking, sending out workshop info, teaching workshops, creating new workshop venues, staying in touch with galleries, being president of a painting association, ordering frames, supplies, working on an 80 page book, illustration work, there’s so much stuff to do it’s hard to actually get to the painting thing. And I don’t even have kids…. or a real job. I don’t know how anybody gets things done…. I end up painting every night till 8 just to stay on course. I get more painting done when I do the plein air events than I do in a month at home, or so it seems. I’m going to have to start scheduling my time better, it’s that time of year to crack down and get all the galleries new work which means ordering new frames, getting canvases, contacting the galleries, asking what they don’t want, arranging to get the work back, moving work from one gallery to the other, shipping. OY! Maybe when I retire I’ll have more time to paint.
I’m heading out for Easton on Saturday. It’s a great event with a good track record for sales, it will be interesting to see how it goes compared to last year. But it’s a week away and am I ready? hell no.
