I just returned home today from a short getaway at the Big Cedar Paint Out, near Branson. I'm always exhausted, but it's a good tired, after getting out to paint and to visit with art friends. After a couple cold, rainy mornings, I waited until later in the day to get out, so only got two paintings almost finished. I decided this year I wasn't going to kill myself rushing around trying to do morepaintings. Instead I took more time to visit with the other artists, and to enjoy the resort. My daughter, Shawna and grandson Levi, came down and joined me for one night. We had a quick dinner in Branson, and that night Levi tried out the resort's double level, outside heated pool. Even if the temp was about 45 degrees. Here is a photo of my display at the show. I'm hoping to hear from some of my contacts. Now, tomorrow, to unpack the van, and organize my studio again.
