It's SO bad ...

If you watch the upper left corner of this page, you'll notice the constantly changing image of a work in progress - it's based on a photograph I took while in Ireland in November of 2000.  Today, that particular piece, as bad as it is, hangs in our entranceway, at home.

Grannie won't let me take it down.  There is no vision in the world blinder than that of a Mother looking at her son's first attempt at painting.

I would love to re-paint this scene.  No matter how I might "do better", she will never like any subsequent painting as much as she likes this one - "Hers".
