Yes, it's been awhile. Ever since the new year I've been down with a cold and a lingering cough---and, as far as I'm concerned, incapacitated beyond all possibility of creative thought . . . I'm useless when I'm sick.
But it's a new month now and the cough has diminished somewhat. I just finished this Fishing Trawler painting. The reference photo has been sitting on my hard drive for a year or two now; I took the shot on the Tchefuncta River in Madisonville. I kept the style loose and I'm pleased with the final painting.
