    Deep stuff. Art, too. Like it. Do you have a favorite style of painting?

      Sorry, Liz! Have been away from a computer, or at least away from my password. I don’t have any special favorite. What have you been up to?

        Life and lots of it. Kids are busy with kid stuff. Trying to keep myself from going completely crazy by working some. Are you still at bofn? Life continues to whirl around for you?

        Dave gave me “post whenever you want” posting rights at BoFN after I wriggled out of the monthly Tuesday duties, but I only post there very infrequently. Mostly I hang out and shill for Fannie and Kerbey. Yes, a life whirl is in progress.

      Thanks, Fannie! It was supposed to be more for historic/theological value than art merit, because its from the 26 martyrs museum in Nagasaki. I had a whole Nagasaki series planned, with a tie-in to the movie Silence, but I ran out of blog juice.

      • There is definite theological and historical value as well as parallelism in the depiction of the martyrs.

        The Nagasaki series, if or when you ever get your blog juice back, would be very cool. But I completely understand running out of juice.
