On The Road Again

Hi everyone. Here I am finally on the road again. Currently Nancy & I are visiting with our family in Lehi, UT. From here we plan to meander North to Montana. I'm sad to report that I've yet to get back to my easel with any regularity but will soon. I have been busy with my "Build Your Own Display Panels" promotion.

I wrote a manual for building your own full size panels for under $20 and saving over $100 that it would cost for professional ones. So far I have sold some manuals on eBay and plan to expand my operation over the next several months. Here is a photo of some of them set up at a previous show. I have submitted an article to an art magazine about them for publicity. Wish me luck.

I received an email the other day from my Editor of the national magazine that published one of my paintings on their cover last year. They now want another for the Jan/Feb 2011 issue but naturally I couldn't find it in the inventory that I carry with me so the only other possibility was that it was left in our Loomis storage shed. I mailed the key to my Grand-daughter so she could retrieve it for me. While was searching in our storage she called to say that it wasn't there??? She couldn't find it anywhere! Now I really was in a panic. I again searched the nooks and crannies of our 5th wheel. It wasn't in any of the usual places and then I looked where I never store paintings, in what I call our attic which is an overhead storage space. There it was! I must have put it up there at the last minute while preparing to travel here. Whew! A lesson was learned - never again will I let that happen. If I can't carry my paintings with me I will make sure I at least have a high resolution image with me in my computer inventory file.
