Major backfire. Without fail, you apologize for not having read said blog, reporting shamefacedly that life has been busy. No kidding. GOOD GRIEF. Please forgive ME. Somehow I seem to have transformed this convenient medium into a guilt machine.
Let me be absolutely clear: I write, as I paint, for its own sake and I'm thrilled if you have a moment to share. All of you are as busy if not busier than I am. Remember "dates" vs "marriages" in the choosing of recreational fiction? This blog barely qualifies as a date. Think of it more as a quick chat over the back fence or a chance meeting over coffee! I'm delighted and grateful if you find the time to drop by. The only emotions allowed are pleasure or interest. Deal? I'm holding you to it.
And if you're still here, this is what I'm presently working on; the daily work is posted on the website. As you can see, I'm working right to left (channeling some ancient Chinese ancestor). The right is considerably more advanced, although I do not think that is true politically. The shot was taken from the canoe on long paddle down the Saugeen. The sky was a truly great colour and, of course, the river was shiny with bright reflections. How could I say no.
