Okay, so this grant application is why I have been so neglectful of you gentle reader. And for this I am sorry. Be that as it may the grant is finally written, collated, and assembled into TEN identical packets! (One original, 9 copies)
Now I am off to rejoin my life as a painter and member of society. The still-life was completed early last week. I prepared a new small panel that will bear a resemblance to this divine little painting. Don't worry Andrea Di Bartolo I haven't forsaken you. Also! As soon as I can scrape together $20 I will go supply myself with more linen to make a new still-life - which is already set up and gathering a nice layer of dust in the studio.
