It's over 24 hours since the Philadelphia Phillies won the 2008 World Series Championship and I'm still feeling the rush - Holy SHIT! :D Seriously! We did it man! Took 28 years to get back but we did it! Finally a Phillies championship for MY lifetime!!! Although it would have been nice to be among other Phillie fans - or at least on the east coast where there might at least be some sympathizers within ear shot - but that didn't stop me from screaming my face off when Lidge nailed that final K. I can only imagine how good the vibe in Philly must be right now...
At any rate, I still have a smile on my face and I'm still an oil painting animal. Here's some pics of the progress over the last couple of days. Granted, I'm a little behind in schedule as far as where I wanted to be at this point, but I have two paintings very close to completion and another not far behind.
Just for the sake of fast confidence, I busted off this quickie tonight. As usual, sorry for all the nasty glares, I'll get some nice final images up once the residency's complete.
I'm off to Chicago this weekend to meet up with my parents and reacquaint myself with big city stimulation. I'll no doubt post some pics of my antics out there - as well as hit the studio with even greater vigor upon my return. Now that the Phils got their big win and now that my absentee ballot is in the mail, I can focus on the next big win - OBAMA 2008 Presidential Champion, no doubt. :)
