From LA Times.

Edward Den Lau, whose Space gallery in Los Angeles was a center for art shows as well as performances, poetry readings and musical events, has died. He was 80.

Ed was my very generous gallerists. Out to LA for June 1st memorial service.

New Years

Dear Live Journal, it has been awhile.

Busy doing RL.

Anyway, this morning of the new year I went to Barton Springs at 10AM to swim and enjoy the annual potluck brunch. The 50º air temp made the water seem warmer than it does in the summer. I brought OJ and some kind to russian pastry from CM.

Then off to Magnolia for some home fries and to buy two new caledars.

After that walked 5.8 miles around Lady Bird Lake from MoPac to Lamar and circled back to Lamar.

Then home to sit in the sun and read.

School will be starting up soon, time to go back to the office tomorrow after painting studio morning and then over to Gregory pool that has been closed since Christmas.

Missing Autumn

Wednesday was hot, high 80's
Turkey Day was cold
Friday I put up 50 xmas lights around front door
Today it is near freezing, raining with possible snow in the hill country west of here.
We missed a season, no fall except for falling leaves. Now it is winter cold, wet, dark.

I've been able to paint, bundled up in cold studio, for the last three days. DS came over tonight and honestly told me my painting was boring and he is correct. Good to have a second set of eyes. I have tomorrow to push it forward. We'll see.

Cracking almonds and crackling fire tonight.

Put out cat carrier and sheet for outdoor cat ojn side porch.

Two outdoor potted plants ok for now, no freeze called for in the next couple days.
No swimming, school pool closed. Barton no sun, wind and air too cold. Monday will swim at sschool no matter the air temp.

Two last weeks of class left, then a lot more time.

Temp drop here in A Town. It may even become fall weather.

I forgot to mentioned a idiot backed up into my truck while doing a stupid traffic maneuver monday. Had to drive after them, honking horn and blocking them in. Yelled IDIOT. No damage but stupid.

Go news on radiology heart wellness report. No plaque build up, excellent.

This week is crazy busy, no studio time until Sunday.

Thanksgiving next week will give me five days in a row for painting and reading.

After that there is four more class days before winter break. I need a break!
