Only minutes ago I finalized EIEIO. At least that is what I believe. This means this painting is officially for sale as of today. My price is $400. If it doesn't sell, then next year I may enter it into either the Friends Of The Library show in Columbus, or VSA 2016 Ohio Exhibition And Tour. In the meantime, I can just enjoy the achievement. I realize this is influenced by the writing of James Howard Kunstler who wrote The Geography Of Nowhere. I read his book in the 90's, and everything else I could get my hands on since that book. I think Jim would like this painting. I was not conscious of this influence while I was in the first stages of this work. In fact, I didn't become conscious until October of this year. Jim does a podcast called The Kunstler Kast. I feature this podcast on my daily blog. Sometimes, I fall asleep to the Kunstler Kast, just as sometimes I would put a record on to lull me into sleep. He affirms this thing that I have been noticing all my life. My house is full of antique furniture and tools because I have been able to afford them. Ironic that my antiques were acquired cheaper than big box stores sell the new items! I need to just let this painting hang on my living room wall for a little while, till I am sure that it is indeed finished.
