The new year is rather distracting for me, so far. My father-in-law is not well, one son needed help moving, and one son is in China on a study-abroad course and was robbed today (his wallet from his hotel room, he's ok.) And I have a 14' Christmas tree to dismantle and 7 large boxes of decorations to put away. However, I am falling asleep planning paintings rather than singing Christmas carols. So..... I expect to get that brush wet sometime next week.
For now, here is a look at a painting I did of a friend several years ago. I was reminded of this painting when I saw a current photo on his facebook page blowing the same horn.
