My basement where I display my paintings is a mess now because we are having some remodeling done and it has already dragged on for three months. I don’t look so great now either. My doctor calls it poison ivy but I’m not so sure. Wearing a long sleeved shirt even in warm weather covers up most of it. But when a man who had seen my paintings when I exhibited at Wheatfields called and said he wanted to choose a painting for his wife’s birthday, which was today, of course I said come right over. He chose a painting of sunflowers painted on site several years ago beside a field north of Lawrence owned by an artist friend’s family. I hope his wife is pleased with his choice.
I received another letter from the Kansas Department of Revenue. As I suspected, I will only have to pay the tax once a year next year.
