"I swear it. I noticed it last Sunday and pointed it out to my kids. They thought I was daft. They thought mom's really losing it, but they haven't stood watch over that spot where the wild daffodils grow anxious for a glimpse of green. They didn't know what to look for.AND THAT'S "A GLIMPSE OF SPRING," A POST I WROTE A WEEK AGO.
These are definitely reference photographs. I can't seem to shake my fascination with lines intercepting one another, cordoning off spaces of various sizes which all go together to form a complex composition. Painting macro landscapes, the woods, would be so much easier if I could. Maggie's cat out for a hunt was just a fun shot, another sign of Spring, that will serve me well in a painting I did five or six years ago. She looks thin right now, but by the end of summer, that feline will need a spa reservation."
The photographs for that post are at the bottom of this post. They no longer exist.

Fifty bucks a year, I get 100 GB of storage. You can buy less for less. You can use the i Cloud if you're an Apple person for free--the way I understood an article on the cloud in Wikiview. In the neighborhood of seven hundred dollars or more, plus the cost of another external hard drive, buys me any data that can be retrieved by my expert.
Waiting for DRG's call, I have crossed my fingers and sent prayers to Saint Anthony. An Artist's life is in photographs. Graphics take a lot of memory. Three terabytes (TB) should have lasted my lifetime, but the electronics couldn't support the capacity or frequent usage. That's what we call a shanda in Yiddish, a screwing, a shagging in English.
