Return of Some Paintings
Con and Chris brought back a lot of portraits, cityscapes, and landscapes. They not only picked up and brought over paintings in their two vehicles, but Chris cleaned my windows and vacuumed spiders up, and Con changed lightbulbs and brought spring rolls. They both hung paintings. It was very nice of them - all these things. I am thoroughly tired out, though, as it was a three hour cruise.
Chris, his wife and daughter, did an exchange with an Aussie teacher a while back (6 years? dunno), and I keep hassling him now asking when he is going back.
Con managed the bulk of the labor involved in putting on the shows. There's a bazillion left to come home, but all in good time. As it turns out, the work involved in the exhibits has taken the entire year. The last show comes down in December, then with moving paintings back here and wrapping up details it will be the full 12 months of 2006.

The returned paintings make me gasp they are so gorgeous! I love the one of the woman with red hair, and the one of someone that has objects across the top, and the one of the man with either a bloody bandage on his eye or a painted-out area where an eye would have been. *gasp*
The women are self portraits - Self Portrait as a Table and Weenies On My Mind. The man was my husband and that's a red potato. It's cleverly entitled Red Potato. I did mass self portraits, but most of them have sold. It's sad when people say, "Who is that?" now. I reply, "Don't get sick, is my advice."
I so want to buy one of your paintings!! Where is the last show? Do you have those remaining online somewhere? -Karan
