After a good bit of downtime and a fair share of studio drama, an opportunity arose that promised to jump start my lagging practice. While less than a month seemed to me a real crunch in which to complete four 4x8" panels, I couldn't refuse the invitation from the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association. This was just the kind of fire under my ass I had needed to get things rolling again. Long story short I managed to squeeze out said panels to a great reception. And, after a thorough cleaning the studio is back in painting mode.
