As I add detail to my newest painting, I am ever mindful of EIEIO. Today is the deadline for the VSA show, and that was the painting that I had originally thought should go to that show. I can anticipate that EIEIO will be finished late this afternoon. It still would not be done in time for the show, as the application and all that goes along with that would need to go through Christmas speed mail. I sure hope no one that wanted to be in the show was prevented by the constraints I have been up against. Amen.
