Just a quick note here: Yes, I'm alive. And, yes, I'm still living on my sailboat. I've had some problems, traveled a little bit, and I've been a little hungry from time to time, but I'm happy, I think.
Artistically, I've been working mainly on my portrait technique, and very recently have moved from pastels to oils. I've also relunctantly done a few caricature commissions, but I needed the money for, er, FOOD. But formal oil portraiture is my future, I believe, and I just finished my first oil commission.
