URSULE & VICTOIRE
16x20" oil on canvas
I'm back in action!! It looked a tad scary for a while as the folks at the Genius Bar had to replace the hard drive, the logic board and the video card because everything they tried didn't work! You can be completely sure that I will be backing up EVERYTHING!! It's taken poor Tim all day to reinstall and locate and he's not nearly finished. You never think you'll need your bookmarks, all your passwords are gone. And gee, guess what? My password/address book must have sprouted legs and made good its escape because I can't find it anywhere. I should be use to it. At this point I've abandoned all hope that I'll ever be the tidy type, the type that always knows where everything is. Why stress? What's the point? It'll turn up and in a month or less we'll find our way back to all new stuff...which will, without a shadow of a doubt be backed up times ten!
The painting has been posted before. It was my first European commission. Just wanted to post something cuz every time my title page pops up there's a really great painting by Robin Cheers because I missed challenge this month!
I'm really excited about the commissions I'm finishing. I accidentally found the most amazing linen surface with a tasty tooth, and the application of the paint is bordering on the sensual, if you'll pardon the bawdy imagery. I'm actually feeling, dare I say, quite satisfied with my progress. I'll have to wait to post two of them as they're gifts, wouldn't want to spoil the surprise.
Anyway, thanks for listening and for the support during my time of computer interuptus. Hope the weekend is going well!
