For those who are interested: Here is a detail from the painting I started to help Jim Spiri raise funds for his Iraq/Afghanistan embed- And here is the latest where I am beginning to block in background colors- This is taking a LOT longer than I anticipated. And I still have to do a landscape for the winner of my own website fund raiser!! So much painting. So little time. If only I got paid to do this stuff full time, eh? Still … its a good way to support our troops so I think its working out just fine. I’ll keep you posted.
