I was returning from an artist's studio open house today -12-3-11, the temp was 14 degrees.
Years ago I attended the same open house in the same kind of weather. I was driving a car that was cold and balky. I mention this, because I wondered if I would ever progress enough in my art life to do better. The artist always sells well at his events. I wondered if I would ever sell, any art that would let me do better, in my own art career. I am happy to announce, I have a warm better running car, money in the bank,decent art and business skills. I consider myself a working class artist.
Going to Ramon Kelley's studio open houses all of these years has been good for my own career progress.
