Apologies for the delay. I've been pre-occupied. It took a while of aimless ripping and tearing, but I've realized I'm simply clearing my canvas before I can start to create. Lots of sweat and fun, and a young wife who is relieved to learn that I want to play, and don't demand anything from her but occasional company and chattering.
Lots of pictures follow, or lead, depending on how this uploading works out.
(The dumpster arrived on Thursday, which helped clear a lot of the piles out.)
