Thanks to all for the great advice on the Southwest Art Magazine. (And as always, I am eternally grateful to Julie Bailey for the great photo used to create the painting of Slider. Her work is great). This is the new ad so far.

I'd see Jim Fowler every year and chat with him and I'd call him Mr. Anaconda, because of that scene of him wrestling the thing in the Amazon jungle. So I can hear the folks in NJ - "Now don't say anything about that 50-foot long thing in the backyard Timmy." http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/07/20/new-jersey-reptile-expert-told-to-keep-mouth-shut-about-anaconda-on-loose/

I just got back from a tour of Michigan State University. My feet are swollen and leg hurts. Am told it is the largest campus in the US. Very nice campus.

Pete called to tell me he liked the painting of Ford and I said the hardest part is doing the grass. But, I said, that I kept working it and working it and I can say it's some of the best grass I ever did.
