You nail those figures. Wish I could go to the sessions with ya but the low fee is still a little too high for me right now. I just finished a Plein air of the Key West pretzel co. It's barter, the painting for some local help and unlimited lunches!!! Sausage, hotdog and cinnamon twist pretzels are killer.

Well... The point of the pretzel comment was that I put he owner in it. Im still a little nervous with people but since I used a brush it seemed a whole lot easier. She was happy with herself.

Het Rooney! Hope you are enjoying the life down south. Missed a great snow, 7" in our backyard, this weekend. Will try and call this week and catch up. Hope you are painting out a lot. I'm finally getting back in the studio, trying to crank it up again. Figures are looking good! As well as the plein air pieces I've seen from down there. Looking productive, which is what we all wish for!! Soon, JC

robert- thanks man! cant beat bartering for sandwiches and pretzels. you can live on those things. will have to try the sausage, and cinnamon twist pretzel

jimbo- call and we'll catch up.i'm very productive when the weather is above 50 degrees. when i was freezing before i left nc i was munching and watching court tv all day. not good for the painting vibe. now i go out everyday for 8-9 hrs riding a bike around looking for stuff to paint.i'm much happier, for sure!
