Tooting or Complaining?

"Bandits at 3 O'Clock"
Watercolor 30 x 22 inches

I suppose this is the only place one can come to toot their horn a little bit. Maybe a place to complain a bit now and then, too.

So here's both!

(Complaint) I haven't painted much for what seems like months! Yes, I have put a little teensy amount of time into a very complex watercolor which, I expect, will take months to finish.

(Complain #2) Time is getting away from me fast! Too many "duties," if you know what I mean. Those are things that MUST be done without question . . . .time limitations don't count.

(Toot) San Diego Watercolor Society's Annual National Exhibition accepted one of my paintings. (Ahem! Toot! Toot!) :p) That would be the above painting. You can see the title.

Some of you may not understand the title. Let me help a little bit. First, click on the painting and it will expand much larger. Second, most guys I have met love to "watch the girls" from whatever vantage point they have (obviously!). Outdoor workers are not exempt by any stretch of the imagination. And there are 'code words' among friends to alert anyone else in the group that a good "sighting" has been made.

"Bandits" is jargon used by US Air Force pilots for enemy aircraft. The clock time is the position in the sky of the 'bandits' with the cockpit being the center of the clock. In this painting, the alert has been sounded. You can figure out the rest from there.

Other than tooting or complaining, I just wanted to check in and say Hi to you all out there in the sphere of cyber.
