Taking Stock/Inventory

Farewell 2016, some have marked you as the worst year ever but I will not cast you into the outer darkness. I won't pretend like you didn't have your moments but gratitude comes to those who practice it. Thank you, 2016. I've been witness to so much good in you on the personal human level, (even endeavoring to add to that goodness myself) that your name will not be besmirched or erased from the annuls of history.

Bank Job!

Did I take a part time teller position? No. Did I participate in a heist? No. Did I single-handedly raise the FDIC limit to $500,000? Not yet.

I am showing my work at First National Bank in Hutchinson, KS. Should you find yourself in the fair city of Hutch, pop in. They look great on the wall!

Commission Season

It's winding down. Only one remaining. I thought I'd share a piece I recently completed. It's working title is "Lincoln at Richmond." I could go into the story happening here but I think it's best told by this gentleman on CSPAN. If you're a history buff, you should check it out!

Ernest IV with Grandpa checking cattle

How cold does it get in Kansas? Mighty. Does a 16-month old care? No. He'd prefer to be outside even it means hypothermia. We are grateful for the warmer days that occasionally grace the long winter in Kansas. We were made to be outside after all, Ernest knows it.
Cheers, and thanks for reading,
Ernest Vincent Wood III
