Not So Fast
Yeah, Michael and I were really hoping that our mild 54 degree rainy weather was going to stick around for a little while longer, but we were wrong. Dead wrong. It's freezing again.
Lots of painting done today!
I really like the color palette I am working with right now.
I have a kind of funny story about an acquaintance of mine in Portland.
He had a show, and didn't have enough paintings to fill the space by the time the gallery was ready to hang is work. Well, he had several canvases that he used for his left over palette paint. Every time he went to clean his palette, he'd wipe the remaining paint on several of these canvases. He wasn't sure what to bring in for the remaining paintings he needed for the gallery so he brought in the scrap paint canvases and put a pretty high price on them. I think he priced them at $900.00? I can't remember.
Well, turns out he sold all four of the scrap paint paintings on opening night, but didn't sell any of his other pieces...
Anyway, it's Thursday! I hope you all are having a good day :)
