TV Interview and Fun in San Angelo

Now I've survived "Ranch Day" (I actually LOVED it), a TV interview while just setting up downtown and gotten a few paintings "under my belt" in En Plein Air Texax 2016. I'll try to get the link to my 2 minutes of fame up sometime soon.

Here's a snapshot of a couple of them. The best -- so far -- came yesterday and today. That's uphill. Good thing.

"Cactus Corner" is the painting I was just toning my canvas for when the news reporter pulled up. Great guy! Nice questions. Poised even when slightly rattled painter. At least sort of.

Everyone here is beyond gracious. Welcoming. Celebratory. Beautiful.

And, the weather's been perfect.

More to come... but with some delays inbetween. We've had full days with breakfasts, lunches, dinners, lots of visitors and a one-hour time difference.

Oh, and I left behind my SLR camera before heading to San Angelo. With a history of selling LOTS of artwork here -- hopefully -- many of my pieces will go away without proper documentation -- as in, poorly photographed. That'd be okay.

Thanks for reading!
