A Break in the Action

After a hectic, chaotic, and yet very productive summer, I am back at home trying to catch up on a few household chores.
I intentionally slated October to do just that. Prep for my winter studio class, fix the studio window, collect, chop and stack firewood, build a pantry for my wife, and homework with the kiddies of course.
As much as I paint which is quite often, I do take well deserved breaks and feel even more charged up upon my return.
I imagine most folks feel the same way and I was able to witness this first hand during a recent skype conversation with my friend and fellow painter Tim Bell.
As you will see in the photos attached below, Tim is an avid hunter. Tim paints hard and he hunts hard. We were not even able to get through a conversation without Tim running off to take care of business, in his words, "Nobody messes with Tim Bell", especially not this acorn stealing squirrel in his back yard.
Breaks are obviously good, I just choose to have mine without a rifle at my side.

Gotta love the guy! : )

Nice. Who'd a thought with all those sailboat paintings.

Too funny. Ironically, my word verification is "adeer." Next time perhaps?
