Mixed Emotions

There's a long holiday weekend stretching in front of me. I have nothing in the studio. I'm glad/sad about that. The yin and yang of being self-employed. Happy to have work (money), not happy about too much work (time).

I have just billed a client for time and expenses on a cancelled project I began before the purchase order was released. This has never happened to me before, so I don't know what to expect. The designer encouraged me to send an invoice, guess it's up to the hotel owner to pay it (or not). I'll report back.

Since my studio tables are clear I had to mess things up some and have laid down a coat of gesso on nine 8" sq boxes, much like artist Martha Marshall is doing. Mine won't be abstracts, they will be collages of western photography and paint. I can see them in my head - but haven't had time up til now to get them out of there.

But the open road beckons! I have a housesitter lined up, a three day weekend and a full tank of gas. We'll see what wins out.

Woo-hoo! I love road trips. Sounds wonderful. Bet you'll find some photo ops.
