the photo tomorrow.)


Here's a little painting I've been working on tonight. It still needs
more time, but I have to go to bed.

Have a working-until-you-are-tired,-but-happy day.

Hi Liza,

Thanks, I think I got the face in the second go. Glad you like the flowers,
I wanted them to dominate. That's how spring feels.
