In the year and a half that we have been on this crazy tour of ours, we have never taken 2 weekends off. We have had a few 1 weekends off but only because we didn’t get into a show and we couldn’t find a pick-up show quick enough. On those weekends off we sit here in the van staring at each other wondering what the hell are we gonna do with ourselves. We often regret not having a show to do and wish we were showing somewhere, anywhere. We live off my art and sometimes live show to show so when there’s no show there’s no money coming in.
We did have a pretty good show last weekend and with all the commissions we racked up we should do fine taking this little break. Which brings me to the “real” vacation part, we lined up a whopping 9 commissions online and at our past 2 shows, which is a good thing since we didn’t know what we were going to do during this break. I had wanted to work on the children’s book but that is a whole other ball game and beast in itself.
The cooler weather coming in nicely. I know, I know, I’m from Colorado where they just got hit with 12 inches of snow, so how could this little wind be cood? Well it feels good to finally run the heater and to be in the van listening to the howling wind and making art.
We got to party a little bit for the Halloween Season, which I drank a little too much on Saturday, which lead to a nothing filled Sunday, which also lead to an almost nothing filled Monday. Although I did finish the “Owl” piece I was working on at the last two shows and its just scary enough to share on Halloween.
And now we are off to go check out our new home away from home (away from home I guess) but still always at home. This might actually make a great blog about the places we call home, and no folks its not "down by the river". Stay tuned...
