Here's the first night's work on my painting of the photograph that appears below. It's not lighted evenly, but I think you get the idea. The trees in the foreground are masked with thin strips of masking tape.
By the way - I have some BOOK NEWS - I heard from my publisher this week, and learned that publication is behind schedule. I know Amazon.com is predicting delivery dates of mid-July, but I think it's going to be later than that. How much later? I don't know at the moment (That was my question to my publisher.) but as soon as I know I'll post it here. Keep watching this space.
