One portion of my transitional period is now complete; closed on my house yesterday. Still trying to combine households with the wife in an efficient manner. Not gonna' happen. Life keeps getting in the way. I'm hoping to at least get back to actual painting by fall at the earliest.

One creative thing I'm trying to get into right now is "The Sketchbook Project". I don't do nearly enough sketching, but I figure if my sketchbook is going to tour the country, maybe it's worth it! However I'm still waiting to be sent the sketchbook, even though it's been paid for weeks ago!

Lastly, here's a shot from a botanical garden we visited in St. Lucia last month. It's "pink torch ginger". Lovely ain't it?
