Yes I'm still alive, just not communicating...not intentionally, but business travels, summer and a deep painting/blog/facebook rut are the reasons. Hopefully I'm back with this latest offering which I started a couple of months ago. I'm happy that I left it for awhile, in that some improvements were made such as punching up some dead areas with floating leaves adding a little colour and interest. This canvas is going up in our home with the koi piece on my blog header going to live at my daughter Melissa's house. I'm only about a year and a half late on delivering her birthday present. She has always loved that painting so what else was I to do? I'm still tinkering with this piece, but I don't suspect any major changes to it. I just wanted to post something...anything!
