I had a big plan to attend the vendor fair yesterday at Healthcare Design 2007 at the Gaylord here in the Dallas area. Seems the exhibitor show doesn't even open until this afternoon which seems like crazy planning to me. Over a delicious dinner at Cool River last night, my giclee publisher Carl from ArtXP. com and I discussed trends in the marketplace. He is really setting himself up to be a premier source for large scale giclee prints. And he's always looking for new art! Plus he's a great guy and easy to work with.

I hauled him over to the DFW Grand Hyatt to show him the 44 paintings I have installed there, but I can't find most of them. Behind closed doors I guess. I did discover that all the art in the lobby level restaurant has been replaced. It was mine so I'm really wondering where it went and why. The replacements look like digital abstracted photography printed on plexi. See? Just what I said a month ago, digital is hot. And if they would have asked me I could have done something similar to what they've purchased. --hmpf--

I'm printing handouts right now, in preparation for self-promotion at the Design conference. Got to get there early before everyone is tired of the whole handshaking-nice-to-meet-yous.

I'm jealous you spent time with Carl. Or vice versa maybe.
