calm before the storm

Well, the minivan is all packed up and I'm sitting here wondering what I forgot. All the boxes and stuff fit in there really well with room to spare, which is not what I expected. How did that happen? Hmmmm. Tomorrow is setup day, and the show itself (Draft Horse Classic) is Thursday through Sunday at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley (http://www.nevadacountyfair.com/dhc) Come visit me!!!!

The next three weeks are the insanest ever. September is always sorta nuts but oh my it has just gotten rather chaotic this year and extended into October. It'll be fun, mostly, but dang!

I finished this today:

12x16 inches
acrylic on canvas
for sale at DHC

I started a sketch for a drawing to work on at DHC. It's dreadfully boring to sit there all day with nothing to do, as there tends to be some serious down time while people are out watching shows, so I always bring something to work on. None of the commissions I have are feasible to work on there (wrong media, too big, need to research stuff and don't have time) and I definitely can't do scrimshaw there so I just started a new one. It's a "green legged hatch" American game rooster. I hope I can do justice to how gorgeous they really are!
