Sorry for the radio silence... my computer had a run-in with a PC-based hard drive and came off the worse for the scrap. Actually I did--my Applecare expired on the 12th (when the MacBook was still perfectly fine!) and now I have to pay 7K Philippine pesos (US$162) to get the hard disk replaced. Sigh.
Anyway, am borrowing a nice person's computer and camera to show you my latest painting in progress.
Venezia, acrylic on canvas, 16" x 20". I like working in a bigger format; I can stand up when I paint. Would like to try a canvas size on the scale of my London paintings, but where would I put it?
