The Opera Workshop ended over a week ago, and I had to take a five day trip to Toronto to do some other sorts of work. This work was quite remunerative, so I was able to buy a brand new computer -- a 2.4 gHz iMac, one of the new ones with a 24" LCD screen. Damn, it's beautiful (it's the one on the right ...)
So now I'm back from Toronto, and free of 24/7 opera, I'm going to start painting again, which I've missed so much.
Look for some new work soon!
