Philadelphia Brick Study #2

6"x4" Watercolor ~ $250. Contact the Studio

Bright sunshine with strong shadows.
A Philadelphia federal.

That which does not kill us make us stronger...
Friedrich Nietzsche

On the way down to Annapolis my van was making
a noise. I dropped Linda off at the show and found
a garage. Had the bearings and break pads replaced
at $400. The show was HOT, HOT, HOT.
Low crowds, and we were on asphalt with no shade
in sight. HOT! I covered my booth, camping and gas,
that was it, no profit.
On the drive home on Monday there was a new noise.
I managed to get to a rest stop and called AAA.

So now we had a tow to a garage and it seems the first
garage tightened the bearings to tight and one wheel
seized. I now have a new $700 bill and a headache! I
have to drive an hour to pick it up and we have a day
to repack and get ready to leave for Ohio. Who but an
artist is ready to do it all over again in a few days and
actually expect to have a good show!! Spread the word,
I will be in Shaker Heights, Ohio.

Yikes, Andy. I hate when life throws us expensive curve balls. At any rate, I love this painting. The historical details on the building are amazing. Oh to be rich!
