Time Keeps on Slipping

"65 North" - 6 x 12" - oil

Things around the studio have been crazier than a field goal kicking unicorn.  Deadlines, deadlines and more deadlines.  In addition to the deadlines, there are so many activities that I'd like to be a part of locally but there's just no time and in some cases it's not worth me losing sleep over.  When I can, I like to make the most out of the opportunities that I can take part in.  For instance, I'll be painting plein air at the Ohio Statehouse (June 1oth) and the following day I'll be painting at the Park of Roses (June 11th).  Will I meet hundreds of art collectors?  Probably not but for me these events are going to serve a dual purpose.  I'll get to meet some new folks who may turn into fans of my work and get some plein air practice in before our trip to Ireland.

The painting above stems from my drive back home after delivering some new works to the galleries.  The plan is to get started on a larger version of this piece before the fall.  I'm not sure where it will go but I'd like to be able to include it in one of the upcoming solo shows.

I wish you had more time! The universe needs more of your work.

I wish I had more time! But sometimes the deadlines give us direction and keep us focused. But, I do crave a distraction from time to time.

I love the composition of this one. Putting the house and horizon up and to the right added a lot more interest. Great work!
