Working Weekends

When I first had the idea of being self employed I had visions of short work weeks, lots of free time. I had no idea that I was an ambitious, competitive overachiever. This week has proven that once again. Friday brought me a rush order for four paintings, a contract with a new publisher, a retail sale from the internet, a request for photography of sports equipment and an add-on to an order already placed by one of my dealers. I agreed to everything. So it is that this Saturday finds me in sweats with a smear of red paint on my forehead, and 12 paintings hanging to dry in various stages of completion.
