gone fishin'

Does anyone still say that? Or does one have to be of a certain generation and beyond to even understand what that means.
My 19 year old friend A had never heard the words "tract house". I thought that was fairly charming. It falls into the category of what happened to albums, dial phones, and and drive in movies.
I digress. Yes, gone fishing, and not in the way that you might like to think but rather spending too much of my time fishing around these parts on the vast highway of I, reading others' posts of this and that, nothing particularly. E tells me as long as i am not adding more and more sites to my bookmarks I am safe. Good rule of thumb me thinks.
Here's what else I've been doing:
A fellow artist K recently offered to make me custom sized stretcher bars/supports so I quickly satisfied myself by having him build a 10 foot long canvas (four feet wide) and I stretched the canvas, primed and now ready to go with my next painting.
I could go on and on about how happy this canvas makes me, but i won't. Suffice to say, I love working on large format space.
The Gstudio group and I have a show coming up at the Beringer winery in St Helena which is shaping up to be what I anticipate as a fabulous time, with our group having a prime bit of realestate to show our art, right in front of the Mansion, under a massive oak tree.
Life is good.
