Tuesday Check in...

Another two weeks have flown by...  I am working!
First (very important)
Track Update:  At the ELCO Invitational, 17 teams ~
Warwick girls took 1st!   Warwick boys took 3rd!
We are undefeated with 4 meets under our belts.

Home Update:  Linda came down with bronchitis, bad
enough for a doctor visit.  Still coughing but much better.
Cleaning out the garage is still going strong.  Several
free items taken off our curb this week, a few things listed
on Craigs List and the trash goes out tomorrow!  Not sure
Linda will make her end of April deadline but we are focused!

Painting Update:   All my time is going to my commercial
account commission.  Here are the first of four paintings.
I am very pleased with the way they are turning out.  I am
really focused on getting them just right!

Show Schedule:   And the season is now  in full swing.
I will be packing the suburban on Friday!
Lewisburg Arts Festival
Held on Market Street
in Lewisburg, PA  from 10 to 5 ~ free!
My space is #92 (moved from last year)

Wednesday check in

I just realized I have not blogged for almost a month, the
longest I have ever gone.  No excuses, I will simply
catch you up.
Classes:  All four of my classes finished the last week
in March. I will teach again in September.  Linda's living rooms
are back to being part of the house instead of an extension
of the studio!
Track:  I coach Jr.Hi. sprinters for Warwick (Lititz, PA)
We are in the 5th week of track.  Both boys are girls
are 3-0!!   Always very proud! We have ELCO Invitational
this Saturday.  I love track and I love working with the kids!
Life Issues:  Our computer died and had to be replaced $$$  
A week later the printer died and had to be replaced $$  
Last week I lost my only pair of glasses.  I had to get a new
pair or I can't  see to paint!  I thought Linda would have a
coronary at the cost $$$   This week the glasses were
found on the bus we took to a meet,  hidden in the seat belt!
I keep trying to spin it, how lucky I am now to have a spare
pair but she's not buying it!
Then my suburban, which is parked on the street, was
swiped during the night with no one taking responsibility.
On the bright side, I can drive it.  On the down side, it looks
bad and I have a $500 deductible.  In an effort for Linda to
control life she decided our garage must be emptied of all
stored junk!  I took 3 loads of old used bikes to a shop in
Lancaster that recycles them.  Linda sold one large pile of her
Moms craft supplies. There are more where they came from!
I was informed we are working on it again in the morning...
she is determined to have it emptied by the end of the month!
Painting:  I have been painting.  I finished two commissions...
 A clients house commission.

A clients hollyhocks from France.

I also finished three paintings for my booth which I will
post later and this morning started a commission of a series
of 4 paintings for a business.  Not sure I may share them
yet...so I am working, just not on small blog pieces.
That wraps up the past four weeks!
