Leonardo da Vinci - Drawings of Inventions

Weekend Warrior

In my childhood a favorite family weekend pastime was to pile in the car and drive to a spot along the road that bordered the Naval Air Station. There, from a good advantage point, we could view the weekend warriors practicing take offs and landings. Occasionally, the rumor would spread through town that the Blue Angels were going to be flying from the base. That was the big treat. The Air Station is long gone, only to be replaced by a brand new town.

Lately, I feel like a weekend warrior with artwork. Most of my time is spent getting ready for the Zoot show. I have finished the last painting that will be in the exhibition, so now I am concentrating on planning the opening event. As I plan the layout of the installation, I probably have too many paintings. Best to have too many, rather than not enough. Only my top picks will be there and I want those to sparkle.
