Could be because I'm a Libra (another birthday coming up this month...), but Autumn is my favorite time of year - cooler, less St Louis humidity, and the changing fall colors.  I love it! **All personal photographs and images/logos are the property of and copyrighted by Tim Tanz, and may not be reproduced or used without his permission.** I have been representing home buyers and home sellers in the St Louis Metropolitan Area since 1997.

After years, I have finally completed a small painting.  Acrylic on masonite board.  8 x 10. A friend of mine and artist, Christopher Schulte, spearheads the Will Flores Fund (http://willfloresfund.org/).  A group of artists are donating works for Stillness in Motion, an annual exhibit where proceeds benefit local community organizations.  The opening reception is Sunday, Sept 22, 2-5 pm.  The deadline to have works in is this Saturday.   I have promised Christopher for a year I was going to begin painting again. I haven't really turned out anything for probably 15 years.  My degree in Fine Art wasn't doing me much good...   I committed to at least one painting for the exhibit.  This week finally arrived, and I decided I better get busy.  I don't know why I procrastinated for so long.  ...
