Hay ! You've been very productive lately, that's great to see so many updates. But more important, I guess seeing the latest pictures that you had tons of fun. I like it.
Keep posting the magic.

Great pic, Scotty. I can't wait to see it finished.

I took your challenge to heart, by the way. I've been thinking a lot about my "personal" vision, and thinking about what I want to say with my work, commercial or not.

julien - thank you sir! Please forgive me- I need to email you . I just got behind on work (badly!)
cheers my friend

hao wo - thank you!

ben - Thanks. I'm really glad, Ben - it is a struggle sometimes. I can only speak for myself, but I know with these new personal works I need to liberate myself from any commercial concerns. It can be stifling and honestly- people will always be more drawn to a personal work anyway. All my best received paintings have usually been something personal - never for a client. That's not the case for many- but it's something to chew on, eh?
