I think most people have no idea how hard this is. Not that I am complaining . I just didn't paint for a few weeks because everything has been so insane, and well, life catches up with you. Somebody has to deal with my house and yard and cleaning. And frankly painting all the time makes me boring. I find I have to stop and think and absorb and get myself in a place mentally in which I can do that. Balancing that and life is the hard part. History is filled people that are brilliant and dysfunctional. I just don't want to be one of those people. I probably don't have to worry about the brilliant part, I can hear people saying. Anyways, Happy Halloween.

I just wanted to thank everybody for supporting me. This has been my most successful year, but that really isn't why I am writing a note of thanks. I am more just overwhelmed by how much people tell me they like my work. Or save up for it. Or end a trip early to come see me. All those things. It is weird to have people emotionally respond to what you do. If I sat here and thought about all those things it would be too much for me. I appreciate it very much, it gives me confidence and makes me believe I am on the right path with my life. I just want to keep on that path doing what I am doing, growing and staying true. But I really just wanted to say thank you, I can not believe sometimes that this is my life. Also a September painting near Ellsworth WI.
