Less than a week until Melinda and I fly to Atlanta, and we're intensely occupied with painting a new design. It had me cursing repeatedly today — it takes some time to get to know the landscape of a new design, and I entered into Black Paint Hell.
I should mention, though, that it is always exciting to develop new work. M. is faltering with a completely new line. Stop. And go. Invention was never simple.
And on another bright note, our 2013 reserve orders are piling up. One gallery said they wanted exactly what we sent them last year — but doubled. No complaints!
