Scattered, Smothered & Covered

So far this year has been anything but dull. I keep promising I will update everyone, but I am very behind on many things and admittedly a bit creatively scattered. Even with the help of my wonderful new assistant... somehow time eludes me. For the most part I've been in the new studio working hard to complete my latest paintings that will be featured in the show coming up at Fay Gold Gallery on February 11th. Invites will be sent out soon, but mark your calendars today so you can save the date!! 

Posted here are a few snapshots of the new studio and works in progress... (My new studio is located near downtown Decatur, in Avondale Estates, GA, just behind the very first Waffle House ... which I think is pretty keen.) 

Also, I wanted to share a quote someone sent me today that I love:

"You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past.
You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy or any of your time, or any of your space."

~Johnny Cash

It's a nice reminder to look ahead and so was the inspiration that hit me yesterday ... I thought about commenting on President Obama's Inaugural address... stepping up and taking responsibility and all really hit home... but then I realized he already said it and there really isn't anything else I need to add, so my only comment is "...yeah, what he said...."  :)

So, there is definitely MUCH more to come... the Art Papers Auction is coming up SOON (February 7th!) and my Fay Gold Gallery opening is but a few weeks away!!!! That's all I can blog about for now ... just wanted to let you all know I'm alive and well and working hard. 
I'd better get back to it!

Cheers and hopes that this quick post finds you all well!!
