No Complaining





Trying to paint hard to get enough pieces for three seperate shows coming up. Radnor Lake show starts this Thursday with a show at Leiper's Creek on the 25th followed then by the Harding Show, a show I will try to have at least 30 paintings for. I am in pretty good shape for the shows but had two galleries contact me and want work.
I remember Julia Roberts told a story on Dolly Parton in an interview once. She said they were filming a movie together and it was in the middle of the summer and some extraodinarily long, hot days and she had been grousing and complaining and she asked Dolly why she seemed so content and wasn't complaining and Dolly said," I prayed my whole life to be here doing what I'm doing. This is a dream come true for me and I'm not about to complain."
3 shows and 4 galleries. I'm not about to complain.

Wise words there Kevin. There are worse ways to spend your life!

I hope you do well at the shows. Looking at these paintings I think you should.
