Today has been a bit difficult because I am still having trouble with my shoulders and neck. I am at a place now where I may need to take extended time away from painting, which I cannot afford to do.
I managed a few hours today, though, on three paintings, so, all is not lot yet.

On a humorous note, Bravo TV is having auditions for a new reality show staring "emerging and mid-carer artists" (whatever that means.) That should be a complete train wreck. This will solidify in the minds of Americans every myth and stereotype about artists that ever existed. We all know these reality shows choose personality extremes for this stuff......

yikes.... I agree. I must confess, I did have some preconceived ideas of artists but I've been blown right out of my socks with my stereotypes with awesome folks like you and others I've met through blogging.

Hope you feel better soon.

Hi Tracey,

Sorry to hear you are still suffering with your shoulders and neck.

You are soooo right about a reality show about artists. The show producers do look for the extremes as I guess that translates into entertainment. My friends outside of the art world will occasionally comment on my clothes or nail colors saying "Well, you are the 'artist' type aren't you?" with the accompanying raised eye brow! I have to laugh at the stereotypical view. :)

Get better soon my friend.

I, too, hope you're feeling better.

I saw the casting call for this latest reality show in the newspaper here in Chicago.

I would be lying if the thought hadn't crossed my mind about auditioning.

The problem?

I don't want to be on TV!!! So that pretty much eliminates me right from the start!

Oh well.
