Happenings in Texas, Art Show and Snow

ART.  I had such a nice letter from the winner of the first art card-inal that I couldn't resist putting up another ACEO art cardinal auction .  It does have a bid with one more day on the auction. These are so very much fun. Both the winner of the first and the bidder on the current one are previous buyers of larger, more expensive paintings, so this is kind of fun for them to get a little bonus at next to nothing in price. I am at a loss as to what I will paint for the March 1st $1 auction offering. It must be something small that is quickly painted. Maybe something will come to me by the weekend. Can you believe that February is almost over? It seems like the year just began.

We hang our four-artist show next Tuesday and Wednesday. Somehow I've got to work in some time for framing and wiring the backs of paintings. Several of them are gallery wrap, but some are in frames. I have all sizes in originals and just a few prints available also.  For those of you who did not see it, here is the show invitation. If you happen to be in the area of Old Town Spring March 4th - 7th, please drop by the show.  If you need directions or more info, please email me.  Or you can search GoogleMaps for directions to the show address.

LIFE. Parts of Texas are having snow again! Weird weather this year. Snow was predicted for here but all we had so far is lots of rain. My daughter lives just northwest of Austin and they had three inches today. My grandson made a good snow angel and a huge snowball about two feet in diameter. He was either going for a snowman or a BIG snowball to throw at his mother! 

Today's Reading:
Avoid Immoral Women--Proverbs 5:20-23
Why be captivated, my son, with an immoral woman, or embrace the breasts of an adulterous woman? For the Lord sees clearly what a man does, examining every path he takes. An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him. He will die for lack of self-control; he will be lost because of his incredible folly.

So we see that all the blame is not put on the woman. In the end, each man is held responsible for his own acts.
