Since it's the party time of the year, I attend a few.
I get asked what I do? I love the question. I get to give my favorite answer.
I say " I am in the oil and steel business."
I walk away for awhile then come back and let the person in on the real me.
I tell them I am an artist, I make oil paintings and welded metal sculpture.
I wrote the oil business thing for fun. I like it.
