There’s a picture I took during a sunset walk on the Island in which a black and white dog casts a really cool reflection in the wet sand. Sometimes when the whole world seems out of whack it’s good to focus on things like that. Today I painted that dog, and that was fun and relaxing.
I also looked through my large rolled-up paintings trying to find a cool auction item. I came across Smoking Girl #2 from 2019. Isn’t she fabulous? And by the way, she’s still available, so let me know if you’re tempted.
I also played with a new idea for the cover of The Glory Days of Aimée Bonnard. I’m making progress with the editing and thinking that maybe I will be able to release the new book in December. Thus 2020 would be the year in which I release two books. I’m also thinking of doing something else new this time around: I’ve learned from the Fabulous MoNique LeRoux how to set up a Kickstarter campaign, and will set one up for the new book. Not only do books cost so much to edit, publish, and promote, but it would be fun to get some buzz going for this project. And it would be fun to learn how to use Kickstarter so I can maybe come up with larger more ambitious projects later on.
Let me know what y’all think of this cover idea. I will still tinker with it, and might come up with something different in the end, but I definitely need a cover image before I set up the Kickstarter.
