Well Google seems to have made a change in the formatting of a blog. At least the first picture goes in first, now. That's an improvement, but I would have liked this first picture to appear a little larger even though it is an ATC. It is a Gulf Fritilliary butterfly and the large white spots on the wings are actually shiny, metallic silver in real life. This is an original painting (prisma colors and water colors) from one of my own original photographs, so I have to invoke copyright here, in case I start to sell on eBay.

Heerman's Seagulls at Carlsbad Beach last week. They come up to us from Mexico in the winter. They will be my next attempt for an ATC.
We leave this week and I will not be back on this blog until December 6th, unless I miraculously learn how to use Moth's lap top. I am taking all my paints etc with me -- not to mention my camera -- and plan to do much painting in the evening, hopefully. I will continue to leave (and accept!) comments until Thursday, and I hope to be able to visit you all via lap top. But if all you get is silence from me, be sure I have not forgotten you. I WILL be back.
