after midnight

Maybe you would think I would paint something "Asiany" since I just returned from many days spent there.  That will come after I have time to sort through pictures.  For the time being I am adjusting to the twelve hour time difference.  This title refers to the time I painted this 8 x 8" angus.  Went to sleep around 9 pm and woke up around 1 am and decided to paint until 4 or 5 am.  Really screwed up but worth it!
I had a wonderful time visiting Chiang Mai, Thailand, Bagan, Myanmar (Burma) and Hanoi, Vietnam with one of my sons.  Got to experience and see so many different things.  I will share some pictures once I am totally recuperated.
I am headed out of town again soon to visit and participate in a show in Asheville, North Carolina.  The show is held on the grounds of the Cathedral of All Souls in historic Biltmore Village. The days and hours are Saturday, the 6th from 10-7 and Sunday, the 7th from 12-5.  This is my first time to participate so come out and see me if you are in the area.

red, white and blue

I wonder how many other people are painting on the 4th of July?  I have been painting some small paintings to take to a show in Asheville, NC . I am participating for the First time in a show in Biltmore Village August 6th and 7th.  I get back from Asia at the end of July and head up to Asheville a couple of days later.
I am very excited and a bit nervous about this long trip.  I am flying to Chiang Mai, Thailand by myself.  The opposite side of our planet. My son arrives a day later.  He is already in Thailand visiting some other areas. I am going with an open mind and great curiosity about visiting cultures that are very different from my own.  It is easy to live in my own little bubble.  That being said.....I am so thankful for this wonderful country that I live in.  I am thankful for my forefathers and the people who have fought to keep this country free. God bless America!  And....the rest of the earth!

This is painted on a 4 x 6 x 2" canvas.sold
