My Web site is back online again. I took down the Coppermine site I'd had up earlier because it didn't meet basic criteria, especially easy linking to images. I have much updating to do to it, but the basics are there again. More good stuff to come.

I just ordered the materials I need for the Advanced Painting for New and Returning Students program at Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia, PA. I gave up traditional oil paints years ago in favor of water miscable oils. This class strongly encourages using traditional tools, so I refreshed my stock. I've been told, most recently at the Illustration Master Class (a fantastic class, by the way), that I'm doing well in my paintings but I'm being limited by water-based tools. Now we'll see. I strongly value the health benefits of water based, but if oil based are that much better, I'll switch.
I've gotten another painting accepted by a gallery. This painting, called "While Mary Sleeps" (oil on Masonite, 13x13"), will hang in the Museum of Church History and Art gallery in Salt Lake City, Utah as part of their Eighth International Art Competition. The showing will be from March through September 2009.
