I recently had a conversation with some one who has known me as an artist for thirty years. The talk was about this person who likes to be self important, not owning my work. I realize he may not like my work. On the other hand, he always says to whom ever he introduces me to, that, I am the best artist he knows. I do have the good fortune to be able to cherry pick the people that I wan t to sell my work to. I wouldn't sell any work to the guy that prompted this post.

I had to post this information, last weekend I surveyed several art exhibitions in Denver. The cool thing is that there is a lot of original art available for every budget. The abundance of art is just terrific. To cut to the chase. I saw works of art that started at $25 up to $10,000. The best part is, the art in this range was selling. One exhibition did about $36,000 in sales, another I looked at did $11,000 and one more sold $11,000. The five figure number sales were all solo exhibitions. I wanted to put this on the record, mainly because of all of the doom and gloom foisted upon us at this time. I like to see that people spending money on art no matter what the financial pundits say.

The fall landscape is looking very colorful today ,mainly because it is overcast. The colors are brighter and more intense because of the gray day. I will make some notes to make some watercolors to record the season. I am making art these days with out the pressure of having to get ready for some special event. I like the freedom of not having to do that. Fall is a favorite time of the year for me as an artist, it's so scenic, it's hard to describe. I am going to have some creative fun , soon.

The sky is not falling, geeze, there's a lot financial news to get people to think the world is coming to an end. that. Real artists last, tough artists last, prudent artists last, believing artists last. Every body is not broke. Tough times pass, real artists last. The sky ain"t falling.

Well I guess I won't be getting that high powered ride I wanted. The news is telling me to hyperfocus on the bad money news. The sky ain't falling. All of those fat cats will have to forgo those vacations they were going to go on. Geeze, they will have to give up the second Rolls too. Boo-Hoo! Me, I am going to ramp up my art life even more, since they tell us the world is going to hell in a handbasket. I'm going to pour myself an adult beverage and game plan. I ain't going down without a fight. Pass it on.
