Oh My it is a new year and I'm just checking in now.  I've been painting.  Yes, I have been painting but I have sent most of them to the basement for a rest period while I determine their future, whether destroy, improve or make into something else like cut them into valentines.  I certainly know that creating paintings is and up and down affair.  I love when the break through suddenly happens. I find it interesting but frustrating to observe.  I'm definitely at a down time now.  The painting to your right was done before Christmas. It is a winter biker coming down the alley behind my house.  See you when the next break through happens.  Em
