Movin on…… like Hank Snow

Thank you all for a tremendous art show in Oxford last week….!,..I’m still tired from it….in a , you know, good way..
tonight i’m rewatching William Hurt in Moby Dick on Prime…he’s very good in it… the whole movie is great…!!….very good.!!.

all I brought home from the art show was a bob Dylan and a Churchill downs… I really like the Churchill downs  and it got no attention at all…none….. C’est la guerre….

I might do the show again next year…if

a. I am still alive.

b. I can think of anything new to paint , that people might want..I’ve painted for show and I’ve painted for dough…. the secret lies somewhere in between.

the Lowly Jets  beat the Giants today…the Giants should just quit…

NYC has the worst sports teams in the USA…

The worst airport.

the worst traffic….

they do have good hot dogs…I wish Memphis had a good Jew deli…I’d go there everyday..

shot or not shot , I’d go…

tip to Eli and Peyton,… if you’re gonna do Monday night football on TV, get a makeup person to fix you guys up… you both have 6 tones of flesh color from bright pink to a languid yellow… and get some hip looking clothes…you look like old Polaroid photos from 1964….

and set out a couple of tall cans of beer, for atmosphere, like Dizzy Dean  and PeeWee Reese did on baseball broadcasts…

you both look like 2 guys just in town from Indianapolis for the weekend..instead of sports legends..

Spruce it up some…,!…do some online betting, live on tv..!

and there’s no need to regale us with long tales , spoken thru a whole series of downs, that go nowhere ….just use ‘well, that sucked’ a lot…to describe unfortunate play calls.  people will like that…

a little set design couldn’t hurt either..

just sayin,,,..

Oxford motel art show oct 21 2023

here’s just a few things of the many that I’m bringing..I make really bad photos..I think these are all 16 x20 framed art boards, so they are about 20 x 22 framed. The numbers are mostly rubbed off on my yardstick.

I’ll be there with a lot of new paintings….

you might like them , you might not…I used to do the show every year but I got tired..

im having to rent an Uber Bus to get me there this year , it has a bed and bathroom in it.

Each  artist has their own room….they can decorate them…each room has a bathroom too…and a bed and a tv,,these are real motel rooms. .. Bukowski would have stayed at this motel..

I usually  just buy an old chenille bedspread to put over the bed in my room, because if you even touch the bedspread that’s there in those rooms, you could get any disease known to man…!

there will be other artists too..  I’m not sure what all they do..there’s like 10 or 12 rooms with a different artist in every my room you get a  beer with every purchase….offer good until supplies run out.

Taylor  Swift is set to be in my booth , signing things, etc…..hanging etc….please do not bother, bug or become a pest ..

refreshments and finger food in the parking lot….

Art show starts at 5pm and I’ll be there there from then till about 8 pm then I gotta get back on the Uber Bus..

I can take ….cash or Venmo or PayPal….if you want to buy something..

if I can’t sell anything , I’ll just walk home.

there is no home football game this weekend so don’t worry about giant awful smelly crowds…of UT or State  fans….
