I haven't posted to this blog since Dec 2008 . I am in the process of getting back to painting again and I will begin posting soon. I lost interest in painting about six years ago  and I took an interest in studying and learning other subjects for the past five years. I have developed a different outlook on life and this may reflect in my painting, if and when I get started. The break has been good . I have not painted but I feel I have grown in my understanding of life in general. I am going to do a painting as a gift to a family member and I have already started with preliminary drawings . I will post soon .  June 17, 2007
