Hey thanks for the kind words and for remembering. I was down in Malibu last week and sold 5 paintings, things are looking up. The only problem is that I can't paint and sell at the same time, which is why I was looking for a studio on AC for the summer.
I talked to rick and cheri but they work so much its hard to get anything settled via email. So I'm still looking for some time on AC,...heck I'll even work on someone's house/cabin/resort for my "room and board".
painting, building/repairing fencing, finishing a project etc etc. teach snorkling to the kids, teach any one to paint etc etc.
Only thing I don't know how to do is fish.
I couldn't catch bait even...worst fishing luck U ever saw. Now my son, on the other hand, can catch two fish on one hook.
