Progress by Pat

Hello. It is Saturday evening. I think the painting, taken from a photograph, of me trimming our fillie's hooves, back when we had fillies, is doneish. The county fair will be here before we know it. I always take several days to look over and adjust paintings. Cyberart509 hung art at Grill on Gage today and then Ed and I stopped by a coffee shop to give them a sample of a 16oz coffee mug. They might want some to serve customers in. There are few things I enjoy more than making a bunch of matching pots. Went to AAA today and they put out my decorative pots that I turned in too late for the January re-do on the 5th. That felt good. Oops-blew 2 mugs up in the bisque kiln today. Mike brought over his bust of JFK and since there was room I put some wet mugs in and didn't notice that the switch was on high, not low. Oops! Poo poo happens I guess but it is always disappointing. At least the clay was reclaimed. I am glad I was down there to hear the blow instead of upstairs. That might have cost us the sculpture. The latest Kennewick Avenue pic is ready to spray with glossy stuff. I am using Behr white paint from Home Depot and it seems to be a pretty good paint. We just found the gallon of it while getting ready to sell the house. Thanks. Pat Fleming

I probably said this before but - you get more done in any given day than anyone I know. Wonder if I rub your head I can get a get-er-done-boost.

Hello Bobi. I have always wondered what it would be like to come home after being away for 9 hrs or so, changing my clothes and then going to my studio or shop. The reality is that if art is part of your livelihood it is not that way. Doing what I do is a direct extension and part of my livelihood. In teaching art one is always looking at, discussing, evaluating and demonstrating art and there is very little adjustment going from that to doing one's own work. I wonder if kudos are more reasonably given to the folks who have to come home, prepare dinner, help the kids with homework and then adjust their heads in order to do art. Just saying.

Yes, kudos and awe for those you mention. Still, art or otherwise, you seem to me an Energizer Bunny getting a lot accomplished day after day.
