Small changes


 Look at this! (Work in progress)

I'm getting a series of Skype portraits
together for an upcoming show, and I'm at
the stage of making changes here and there,
standing back, and thinking about what to do next.
It's very late and I must quit now. 

I hope you've had a joyous and productive day.
We watched the movie, The Young Victoria tonight
and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm thinking about new
names for these paintings.  But meanwhile
I'll stick with the old one.

Have a enjoying-your-Sunday day

Hi Sally,

What a great idea. I'll have to talk to you about that one. Right now I need to concentrate on getting this done.

Let me know what the deadlines are if you have time.

Hi Liza,

How about stopping by Toronto on your way home from Spain. I need your kind of enthusiasm here. Your paintings are just exceptional. I'm sure you're having a super time and it shows. No one deserves it more!
