We watched as you added your painting to eBay, then to your blog. We contemplated if you were havin coffee while lining up your daily routine. When you paint your small paintings do you get the business end out of the way (what we watched) or have you finished the small painting by this time?
In view of today’s post I take it that you enjoy a good burger. This in turn brought to mind a conversation with my father about good burgers. He had mentioned back in the day when he was young that a place here in Des Moines had made the patty with a slice of onion inside the meat. Can’t for the life of me remember the name of the place. Such is life.

Hi Fred, You hit the nail on the head. Coffee first, feed cats then the business aspect. Shoot yesterday's painting, download, clean up, save hi-res, save mid res. Put on ebay, put on blog. Invoice if today's painting sells, print label, wrap and set out for mail person and start all over again. Kinda like Ground hog day but more fun, spending the day in the studio with the cats and breaks on the porch with the better half, it's a good life. Enjoy, S

Stephen: Very nice.. The black awnings really nail the building onto the canvas.
