DOTS – 4″ x 4″ – Oil on Gessoboard
They are helpful about taking my money. On the cover of the issue I received yesterday was a tear out postcard to subscribe. It had a year’s subscription as $23.96. Standing by the mailbox I started to remove it from the cover to put into the outgoing mail slot. Before I could finish another postcard fell out of the magazine. Picked it up – another subscription postcard – this time for $21.96. Being somewhat of a financial wizard I went with the fall out postcard. I looked in my checkbook at last year’s price – $14.95. Everyone at the magazine must have received a nice raise this year.
The candy painting goes well with my Halloween sweet tooth. If I hadn’t spent so much money on that magazine I could have more candy. Still, all is not lost. This makes for a rational reason not to share my shortened supply of sweets with a hoard of scruffy children.
yummy Dots. :) Miss ya Billy boy.
Becca, I would share all my candy with you. I’m persona non grata in my neighborhood Halloween loop so perhaps you could dress up and shag us a couple of bags of DOTS, SNICKERS, CHARLESTON CHEWS, TOOTSIE ROLLS, BABY RUTH. I put that list in all caps to help you remember.
Nice to see you back, Bill.
Thanks 100swallows. My daily activities including actual painting don’t leave me much time to blog anymore. In the old days I was blogging in lieu of doing my day job. You don’t suppose that is why they told me to take a hike do you?
