karma or something

Why does the printer never run out of ink BEFORE I go to a supply store? I went to Staples this morning to buy some brochure paper, didn't even think about getting ink (the warning lights weren't on), got home, printed the front side of all the brochures, and the printer ran out of ink. The warning light had gone on when I was about half way through (I only did 20! And they are not all that colorful!). ARG!!! I probably should have gone back this evening but I ran out of time so I'll have to go again in the morning, come home, and THEN set off to deliver the darn things. I'm taking some to a local kennel, some to a groomer in Sacramento, and some to a pet boutique (did I mention I'm TAKING COMMISSIONS again?). And I'm going to an art supply store to load up on items that I need for accomplishing this year's Christmas list. Can't really specify....

I am gallery hunting. Know the perfect place? Tell me. I've made a list of a few places in the greater Sacramento area that I need scope out, and find out what their submission policies are. Do any artists read this blog? If so, how does this work? Do you submit to more than one gallery at a time and then wait to see if any accept you, or do you go one at a time? That just seems like it could have a rather long turnaround time, particularly if they are wanting mailed-in submissions or only review them monthly or something.

Who reads this thing? Sometimes I wish you would all introduce yourselves. :-) Some bloggers write for themselves. In some ways I do that, it's a handy way to keep track of things, but generally I'm not writing this for me, I'm writing for anyone who wants to read it. Please feel free to leave comments!

I finished the Silver Duckwing Old English Game Bantam, and emailed a proof to the client. As soon as he approves it I can put it on line.

I haven't really posted many pics lately. I should do that. Haven't taken many. And the art stuff is all non-showable at the moment.

I know, I've always meant to show the figure drawings but never found the right time or place. Nudes don't seem to fit my website theme too well, but they are art after all, a rather classical form of it! I was a little weirded out the first few times I did figure drawing but it gets easier, and it's actually rather fun. I hope nobody gets offended by this. Remember, I'm an artist and this is an art blog (well, chickens and horses too!). Anyway, it's just parts. Actually, it's line and color and shading. These are all from Summer 2000 (college), I think only two people have seen them. :-)

Graphite, charcoal, chalk, pastel (they vary) on 18x24 inch paper. There are three models, but you'll probably figure that out.
