December 22, 2007
Nice day at home. Worked on two commissions: a Stagecoach Pass painting and Powhattan Clark, for friends in Arkansas who requested the piece.It's also a set piece for Mickey Free.

Also, this afternoon I spent time in the chicken coop sketching the Silkies and Bea-52, the big oldtime bomber hen, who towers over her new condo-mates. Left the inner-door open yesterday and so far they haven't killed each other and seem to be cohabitating. May change, once the liittle Silkie Rooster gets his fight on. Not looking forward to that. He's already a cocky little guy. As I sketched them, I noticed little quirks among them, like one of the Silkies has a crooked beak. I've named him "Bilko" as in, the Phil Silvers' TV character fromthe fifties.

Charlie Waters called and I wished him a happy sixtieth birthday. He's coming down in February for a rehearsal for a big Kingman show we are planning with Scott Dunton and Mike Torres. More on that later.

Going to a Christmas party tonight up in Carefree. They're Kathy's friends and so I'm just arm candy, or, should that be arm-hanger-on? Maybe not.
