You are hereby forewarned. This post is choppy and disjointed. Mostly because most of the stuff I’m talking about didn’t really feel like it could stand on it’s own.

So I did Rockbrook in Omaha the second weekend in September. Again is was a blistering hot event at 96, 94 degrees respectively for Sat & Sunday. But it was so worth it.

Sales were really good despite the weather and the above original painting went home with a “be-back” from the previous year. Cool!

That was then, this is now

This weekend past I went and did a giclee print consultation with an artist and as I was driving there I turned the heat on in my car.

I know right … THE HEAT!

Today is cold wet and rainy with temps not hitting 70 and overnights in the 40’s so bizarre. Last week had summer written all over it. This week is screaming Fall. Even the leaves on the walnut trees are dropping. Truth is I love Fall. My favorite time of year. So it’s all good.

Weekend Forecast for Riverssance

Supposed to rain everyday up until the event. Then Sunny and 70 both days with 0% chance of rain. At least that’s what they’re saying now.

My booth is #98 and I’m in the inner circle facing the bandstage.

Hope to see you there

So I guess they were right and I was wrong. Yay! We both win.

The above painting was sitting in my gallery backroom for years unfinished. After the upteenth person saying …

“Oooh …I want a print of that painting.” Pointing at wolves.

ME: It’s not done.

THEM: “What’s left to do?”

ME: Uummmmm.

So despite not really feeling like it was finished I just framed it up and well … sold it.  Both wolf pieces went this year. So now I’m all … what new wolf piece can I do? I’m weird that way. I kinda have to sell the critters originals that I have before I do more. Horses are really the only critter exempt from this internally imposed rule.


UPDATED: After chatting with a dear artist friend, she asked why hadn’t I made prints of this piece. So since it wasn’t clear, prints are available check out my WFG website for detail.
