Work Those Fingers To The BoneNovember 19, 2007
By W.R. Jones
I was going to paint yesterday (Sunday) but instead spent most of the time making miniature easels like the example shown here. This is a 5″x7″ painting to illustrate the easel size.
I was having them made for me but the woman wanted $90 each so I decided to do it myself. Now I know why she wanted $90. My nephew was watching me stain a few and asked why did I not create a small assembly line and mass produce them. I don’t wish to be in the easel business. I don’t want to be in any business, I want to retire.
According to an article I read in the Sunday paper, I need $2 million to retire. Sheee-it. You people are going to have to step up your purchases. Let’s do the math. Two thousand paintings at $1000 each and I’m out of here. The only way this is going to work is if we have some type of pyramid scheme. Here is what we could do; you buy one and ask (no TELL) each of your friends and aunts, uncles, etc. to buy one.
I asked a woman at the gym to support me. I point blank told her I was weary and someone should take care of me. To my complete surprise she said yes. She said, in her opinion, some of those cardboard boxes and designer shopping carts made for a very classy lifestyle completely suited to my personality.
