  11. I apologize. I've been following lists on both SOC and ICADs, and have apparently missed yours. For that I apologize. I'm here now, though, and I've been perusing your entries. You make incredible art. I confess, I haven't found a thing on your blog I DIDN'T like. Your art is simply unbelievable. Such a great command of composition and color. And not just SOC colors, either, but all your art. Nick Bantock never looked so good (grin). And of course, I loved your summer solstice piece. You are a very gifted artist.
