A whole lot of marking going on

Today I just had to catch up on my marking,
to the detriment of any possibility of painting.
Never mind -- a wide avenue of painting hours
opens up now for about a week so it was worth
my teaching/marking stint today.

Here's a portrait commission from a few years
ago which I especially like. I may have shown it
to you before. But it makes me happy that it lives
in a friend's house nearby.

Have a catching-up-and-finding-time-to-create day.
