Robin really earned her commission today (or she would have if I gave her one).
She arranged a studio visit for some associates from her company and sold her heart out.
---Three drawings from my show here and a painting from the show in Memphis. Thanks to her tireless efforts on my behalf, five of the twelve drawings from the Small Drawings show have sold! THANK YOU, SWEETHEART!

Once again our friends, Nina and Jim have come to our rescue. They've loaned us a truck until we get things sorted out w/ our vehicles. Robin is still asleep. It was a bad accident and it really shook her up. I'm going to the studio to try and get some work done.

Well, we totaled the truck tonight. Yes, the one we've had for only four months! And the saturn is in the shop. So, that trip I was planning to Memphis on Thursday will have to be postponed.
I won't be able to be there but you should stop by Emily Walls' show at Automatic Slim's restaurant in downtown Memphis. The opening is on Friday the 17th probably sixish till nineish.
Emily is the best and most thoughtful artist working in Memphis so stop by and buy a painting!

Last night was the opening of my show of drawings at the Studio: art and movement in St. Augustine. The opening went really well. It coincided with the monthly Art Walk, and even though it rained for most of the night, I think the walk and the article in the St. Augustine Record brought people in.
The crowd was a crazy mix of types---older tourists, students, and a healthy mix of loopy artists. Most people I enjoyed talking to.
I surprised myself by selling two drawings so far. Those of us used to Memphis openings know just how surprising a sell can be. One drawing sold before the opening started and when Jennifer called to tell me I thought she said..."someone stole one of your pieces." instead of "...I sold one of your pieces!"
