Sometimes I think a little more about the future than I need too.

This book has been on my wish list for a while. When friends pass away way too young I guess it's normal to wonder a little bit more about life. I'm still dealing with stuff left behind. On top of that, I'll be leaving stuff behind. For the record, I have a storage unit in L.A. Marina Del Rey, actually. Just art. For the other record, at the end of the day if I do more than break even, I'd like to establish a small grants program for other artists.

The dog is suspicious of me today. He won't come back in to eat his breakfast. Yesterday, I ran a tight ship and got him out, fed, and walked with amazing precision. Then I left all day, came back during lunch to reassure him the world hadn't ended and returned to the public arts workshop. It's 9 am now and he won't eat breakfast. He thinks this will keep me at home. He's manipulative.

I LOVE this painting.

I have a storage unit too, but a lot of people call it "the transfer station"

Can I be first in line for a grant? I just sent off my first attempt at the Pollock/Krasner thingy.

Every time I move my feet right now, the dogs think I'm getting up to feed them. I am determined not to do this until 6:00 PM sharp, regardless of their anticipatory behavior and strands of drool.

I'm going to add that book to my wish list. Thanks. I thought about that a lot during the Chemo year.

I sent my first PK grant off last year. (reject) It's time to try again. Thank goodness I have no social life.

ooh nice painting, nice. Like how it conveys the title and looks beautiful.

Thanks, it's a older one. I'm trying to get back there. I got really tight with the small works. I'm much more comfortable when I try less. If that makes sense.

Yes makes sense. It's very hard to stop trying. But when you get there ..wow.
