This is another little bird painting I did a couple weeks ago. It’s so fun to paint birds. You can add a ton of detail or keep it simple. Just play.
Boy, that is a great quote. I seem to have so much on my plate that the only way I can manage it, is to break it into chunks and attack one chunk at a time. It was the same way in Atlanta. AmericasMart has three huge buildings, with a total of 800,000 square feet. Building 1 has 20 floors, building 2 has 18 floors and building 3 has 13. Building 2 even has a west wing with 11 floors. Each floor is really huge. To give you an idea, the second floor of building 2 had 210 showrooms or booths! It was a daunting task, to figure out where I wanted to go and who I wanted to see. I did hours of planning before, and hours of note taking after the show each day. If I didn’t break it into chunks, I would have never been able to make the most of the experience. I would still be trying to make my head stop spinning.
Mr. Coolidge had some great advice, didn’t he? “We cannot do everything at once but we can do something at once.”
