"Arts and sciences are not cast in a mould, but are found and perfected by degrees, by often handling and polishing, as bears leisurely lick their clubs into shape." ~Michael Eyquen de Montaigne

Still havent completed resurrecting the studio for painting, but aside from the dozens of planned paintings and unfinished work, I have one I started sketching for. Another is a self-portrait or state of being painting to commemorate another birthday" Peter Grabas July 2010
