... for two hours today. Bought a new stapler. These things are drum tight. I'll finish them up tonight then head out to paint tomorrow. Estes, if possible; the weather is heating up. Wrote and submitted an application for the Caribou Ranch artist residency. Would be nice and close. Reread my ROMO application statement and wow, it makes me want to do that project regardless of if I get the residency or not. I can easily fold in my "forest details" idea with views of Longs; a nice extra layer. I love the idea of the consistent subject.
