Today was spent matting and framing my two larger pieces for a private showing at the Mayo Clinic this weekend.  I also worked on a brochure and business cards to have on hand there.  To get ready for painting tomorrow, I gathered in much of my painting debris.  It will tend to take on a life of its own and, amoeba-like, work its way into every bit of living space here.  So as I retire tonight, there's a single still life set up over the mantle with the field easel in front and ready to go.  I love going to sleep this way - thinking about the painting that's yet to be.

My favorite bedtime drink is coffoa - half decaf espresso and half dark cocoa blended in water.  I love it piping hot but you really have to watch the pot or else it will quickly boil over and create quite a mess.  Unfortunately, that happened tonight.  After things cooled down I soaked the mess and then scraped it off with a single-edged razor blade.  Then came the stove-top cleaner - and memories of preschool finger painting.

Memories; stove top cleaner on stove top; 8" x 10" - or something close to that

Lovely that your paintings are going to be out there in the wide world, and attracting folks who just have to take them home. I hope that the contacts build and build.
