August 30, 2003,
Great weekend, so far. Met the Radinas, Brad, Carol, E.J., Mercedes and Betty at Shelmita’s last night for dinner (Betty bought for Brad’s B-Day, $100, I got tip, $20 cash). Fun. Had the tampiquena and enchilada, maybe three beers, Pacifico. 'Cedes got cold so I ran her up and down outside. Fun.
Got up this morning and bailed into art. Made a vow to just draw for a half hour every day. I actually love it and have fun doing it, but rarely get the time. So this morning I made the time. Really helped me get in the water, speaking of which, I swam laps and made another batch of pintos. Had to call my mom in Wyoming and ask her if you boil them for one or two hours (it’s two on the first go-round). Almost blew it again. Went out to check on a painting and of course, got engrossed, finally went back over and had turned on the wrong burner. Saved by stupidity.
Had a light lunch, took a nap. Went up to Blockbuster and got three movies: Desperado (for the cool gun shooting to use as reference for Classic Gunfights), Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedian and Secretary.
The new Entertainment Weekly has a big article on the wave of new Westerns (they gave Open Range a B! Wow!). And speaking of which, it looks like we may get a big name from one of these new Westerns for the December cover. I don’t want to jinx it, so I’ll tell you as soon as it is confirmed (probably next week). Hope to paint more this weekend. Came up to the office to post this. My home computer is still kaput.
