I got an order for a chrome lab with pheasant hood ornament and sent the wrong one. Hence, I have this brand new chrome Louis Lejuene mascot that was sent back to me because I have to sent the customer another model. It retails at $425, but if someone is interested, I will let it go for $335. The other neat thing about it, is that it comes with 4 magnets (which retail at $85 plus.) Magnets mean you can mount it on your hood without drilling holes in it. Those come with it free. Shipping is $10. So basically, you get a $510 mascot for $345. If anyone is interested, let me know. The details of it are here: https://www.sportingartisans.com/sculptures-ceramics/hood-ornaments/sporting-art-labrador-with-pheasant-large-hood-ornament-wildlife-art.php#sthash.TioEUOQn.dpbs

Just sold this painting - "Thomasville Yellow" - yesterday to a nice guy in McAllen, Tx who saw it in Southwest Art Magazine. First time that's happened.

A great quotation: Women don't want to hear what you think. Women want to hear what they think - in a deeper voice.

A watercolor I did of the Manassas (Bull Run) Battlefield. It was below zero that day and no one else was on the battlefield.

It was warmer outside this morning than inside. Also at ground level - perfectly still, while above, the clouds were moving rapidly. Perfect morning. Love the overcast as much as the sunny days. Colors will peak soon.
