Had a lil free time – did a lil more painting. I’m having fun experimenting with some new ideas with this one.
The not-so-fun part about moving to a new city is the exposure to all the new strains of colds. I’m sick. AGAIN. Jim’s finally on the up after having been sick for the past week himself. On the plus side, this illness has the good fortune of not overlapping my birthday, Christmas, or a major […]
