First, let me say that I think it is good for Bill to have to work with others. Initially, I pitied the student who stepped into that unenviable position, but in the end Bill behaved nicely and did not try to move the set up when she wasn’t looking, or steal her paper towels.
I finally got a picture of the demo I did last week. (Once again, please excuse the poor quality of the picture, but I am really praying to Santa that he bring me a new 10 mega-pixel camera for Christmas.) That demo was a real b–buster. First of all, the crowd was big and ruthless. They asked questions throughout the whole demo and actually expected an intelligible answer from me. Then, it was an ambitious size for a demo at 18″ x 24″. I’ve never done one that big. I decided to create something this size because Jordan, the proprietor of The Portico Gallery (www.porticofinearts.com) where I sell my work, keeps asking for this size. BTW, feel free to call her or email her and ask why my paintings are not up on her website yet. Do act like a buyer. In fact, do buy something.
And as I prayed to Santa, I also prayed to the God’s of cotton to deliver me some bolls for my next still life. Sure enough my super dad sent me some the other day. I will never call him a raging hypochondriac again.
