I went to a market in between the heavy rain. I was out of a bottle of milk. I wanted to do morning walk same time, so I took a walk to the market with a backpack on my shoulder. this way I didn't have to hanging a plastic bag from my hand. I was lucky that I got home before the next heavy rain started. The rest of the day, I stayed home and writing news letter.

I cut three additional mats for the paintings of exhibition in Japan. Because of my Japanese artist friend's advise, I mainly painted small sized paintings. He said the small painting is easy to sell and I agreed. However, after I finished all the paintings I needed, I changed my mind because a large sized painting was much more attractive than small one. So, I decided to add three more large sized paintings to the exhibition. After all, I am an artist, I like to show my good work more than making money.

I received a card from an art gallery. It was an one man show of a local watercolorist. Because of the impressive image on the card, I decided to go to the show. I went to there Sunday afternoon. The gallery had a reception that day and quite a lot of people were there. The gallery was a small space. It was a front part of the flute retail and repair shop. I thought that was a good idea. The repair shop doesn't need a large space, so don't waste the precious space. Also, it was right size for an one man show. I would like to do my own show someday. I enjoyed snacks and refreshments, of course I enjoyed nice paintings, too.

Have you ever seen a street parking mater which you can use a credit card? I saw it today. When I went to Little Tokyo this morning I saw new type of parking meters on the first street. My friend who lives in Little Tokyo told me that these are the parking meter which I can use credit card. First, I thought he was joking but he was right. I took a close look and saw the space where I could insert a card. City must installed them recently, because I never seen them before. Now we have the parking meter accept credit card, what next. May be homeless will start accepting card. "Hey, do you have a change?" "No I don't." "OK, I accept credit card Visa or Mastercard."

I took a long walk to a park near by. It was a beautiful morning after the heavy rain at previous night. There were a couple of clouds shape like a cotton ball. The Birds were singing in a big tree. I felt so good.

I spent President day weekend at Palm Springs. One of my friends was house sitting there for his friend. Therefore, I took advantage of Free room to stay. It has been 5 years since I had been there for last time. coincidentally, an arts and crafts show was going on that weekend. I enjoyed the art show, too. I use to do this show long time ago.
