I finally finished painting my ten West Texas commissions and I’m so very happy with how they turned out! I also got to spend a lot of time with John today, first at EQ, then at his house. It was so good to be able to talk to him about some of the stuff I’m going through, in terms of hosting my own events, hanging my new show, and just in general trying to run my business. It ended up being a very good day, happy and inspiring, a break from the pressure I’ve been feeling lately. The dogs were also very happy to see me. But they would not, despite my best efforts pose together under the Christmas decorations.
