Hi all. Sorry I let you down. I am a Slug you know. It was too much for me to start two new "day jobs" in May AND do a painting a day for 100 days.
Now that the dust has settled, I still want to be your paint slave. So how's this idea. I keep drawing, I keep painting. I post a painting almost every day. There will still be 100 total, they will still be offered to you the public for $100.00 each - some may be on wood, some on canvas, some on paper - hey supplies aint cheap I gotta scrounge sometimes.
On days when I'm too pooped to paint, I will still post. I can post a scketch from my daily lunch sketches, so you can see the ideas as they form, maybe see the evolution of one of your favorites.
Hey by the way, they are for sale, please contact me by phone or email to buy - two of them are SOLD already, the earthworm one and the Vespa Bunny Babe. I can be reached by finding my contact info on FISHCHILD.COM
Today's painting is already for sale at CITY ART Co-op Gallery in the Mission (828 Valencia ST.) and the opening is at 7-10pm this Friday night, June 1!! Come on down and buy it. It's slightly more than 100 because of costs of showing it through the gallery, but essentilly, I'll only get 100 for it. (It's still a bargain).
Enough about money, just enjoy the daily posts, as I hope I will.

Ok so this one is on a canvas, rather than on a wood block. And, I cheated and didn't quite do it this week. But - it is 8"x8", original art and for sale for $100.00
This challenge I've given myself has already defeated me. I guess my life is a little too intrusive to do a painting a day. So, I am changing the rules a little. I can have weekends off. If I want. And, if some nasty little life thing comes up, like my mom going to the hospital (true story no lie) this weekend, well, I don't have to paint.
That said, I am committed to completing 100 of these suckas, and if there are a few blips so be it. I intend to make up for Sat and Sunday's paintings with a Kentucky Derby themed pic - I just love that a one-eyed horse ran the race, and another.
Ok so here's another confession. I'm taking another couple days break while I take care of some serious buisness outta town. I'm not beating myself up, cause I now have three (3) count em day jobs, and am working on painting commissions, and have two shows up and a neighbourhood trunk show in NOPA _ Pan handle district on Saturday for pre Mom's day shopping.
So I refuse to make myself feel guilty that I'm not posting a painting a day right now. Most likely catch up paintings and daily ones will resume next week. Thanks for caring.

Hi there, here is today's painting - a bit early. I have to be at the City Art show tonight, so I have to post and run. It's another obscenely priced piece of original work - 100 dollars. This one is for Tracy, who likes earthworms.
If your interested, shoot me an email and I can arrange a payment method through paypal, or I accept payment via credit card over the phone, or cash or check.

I'm preparing a page for these to be archived and viewed together on Fishchild.com, that's to come soon. Had a good night tonight. Tomorrow work, work and more work. Tomorrow night is the opening for City Art May show. I've sold a piece before the opening and am working late tonight to provide a replacement for that peice. However, here's my third entry in the 100. Enjoy.
I will be offering small giclee prints of each of these, unframed, on fine art paper for $20.00 a pop. Just let me get squared away with the rent first, then I can buy the paper.
Originals, only one of it's kind, again, are only $100. Buy it now!! (Help me purchase next weeks planks to paint on!)
