When I got home today... My email box was still overflowing, I have shipments to get out, three commission paintings to finish, a studio to finish organizing, Etsy listings to put up, Blue Door inventory to complete, the new Mixed Media Resin class to work on, not to mention...my new painting and YouTube video that needs to be finished.

Here's a video from one of my favorite artists and people...Andy Dooley. Hope you enjoy it. You should check out his site, artwork and blog. Great stuff.
