I got an email from Southam Gallery; they put in a request for some “Stocking Stuffer” sized paintings.  Generally I don’t like doing such small work because you can spend the same amount of time and do a 12x16 which would sell for more.  But if I can keep these small 9x12’s loose like a quick study they might be fun and who knows maybe they just might sell as stocking stuffers? Here are two block-ins I did this morning.

I’ll try to do a half dozen of them!

My wife has a big birthday coming up, so I haven’t been diligent about writing. Instead I have been racking my brains on what to get her.  Maybe a DeWalt 12” Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw would be the perfect present !!!  Between you and me I am working on something secret, but the last thing I would want to do is tell the internet where it would leak back to her!

  1. Some folks actually stuff stockings with paintings?

    Their kids must just love that.

    "That's an original Richard Boyer oil painting, son..Look, it's even signed"
