Wait … What year is this?
Granted, the end of 2013 was incredibly packed, between multiple cross-country flights for a variety of shows and photo sessions, filling holiday orders, a big remodel project, and then hosting a full house for the holidays.
And 2014 shows no sign of slowing down! I’ve got a full schedule of shows this winter and spring, and a series of photo trips planned for spring and summer.
Right now I’m revamping the entire e-commerce portion of my website for a cleaner, easier-to-use look and better integration with mobile devices. Watch this space for more details!
“My favorite part of winter is watching it on tv from California.”
I apologize to those of you who are chipping ice out of buckets and trying to figure out how to get horses out of stalls so they won’t go completely stir crazy in the frozen rest of the country. Out here I actually had to call the air-and-heating guys to come out because my thermostat had gone kaput … and I couldn’t turn on the air conditioning in my office. I know. I’m ducking to avoid the snowballs that were just lobbed my way from New York. It’s small consolation to the rest of you, but we haven’t had a drop of rain this year … and this is the rainy season, so it’s getting pretty crunchy out here.
But meanwhile, I’m using the astonishing lack of a winter in San Diego to get back to my painting roots. After all the hours spent in front of the computer screen in the past few months, January has been about knocking the rust off my paint brushes. It’s been “boat” month for the Plein Air Painters Association of San Diego, so I got to jump into the deep water, so to speak, with a subject that is almost as difficult to render well as horses, because boats too are always in motion.
