I am incredibly tired, no days off for about two months and having completed three shows in quick succession.
So I am honestly wiped out.
A woman called this morning asking me if I remembered that she was coming in Saturday to look at a sculpture and a Toulouse Lautrec print that has unfortunately already sold. This is sort of traumatic as I have about a hundred or so extra paintings on the floor with no place to put them and it normally takes ten days to two weeks to sort it all out.
I attempted to carve some navigable paths this morning, with some small success but then a picker stopped by with a Chinese abstract that might have real value and that I had to buy. Jeesh.
Yesterday I purchased a great maritime painting by New Jersey artist Warren Sheppard (1858-1937). Both yesterday and today's paintings need significant restoration.
I got up at four in the morning and wrote a to do list for myself for the day, almost got everything done but there is nothing left in the tank so I will idle away a few minutes writing.
Tomorrow is another day and hopefully I can make a serious dent and push. Next three days will be very interesting.
Sunsets and sunrises have been very pretty in these parts of late. I haven't touched the camera in a month so the phone will have to do.
