About a week ago I got a very nice well mounted widelux captured sunrise from Loren Sattler.
It currently sits atop the piano. My son is occupying the work bench painting his cub car presently.
When that is done I can get the use of my bench back and cut down a frame to suit this image and hang it properly.
My prints were mailed today. Both go overseas, so it'll likely be a while before they show up.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”
I received Steve's "Down by the Jetty" yesterday, which is a different interpretation than the print he sent in the postcard exchange. Unfortunately, because I had a months worth of mail waiting for me, the postman didn't bother knocking on my door to give me the rather large package that included not only this print but everything else, he just shoved it in my mailbox as best he could. Which bent the mat horribly. The picture is mostly okay, but I can't get it out since it's all glued together. I hope I can figure something out -- it's a nice print. Thanks!

Oh dear, shame about the matt but at least the photo sounds salvageable. The matt is attached with glue dots to the backing board at about 6 points or so around the edge so you should be able to slide a knife around it without damaging the picture. The photo itself is just lightly taped to the matt board along the top side if I remember correctly. I suppose it's always a risk sending this sort of thing by mail but I hoped the bubble wrap and extra card would be protection enough. At least it arrived :-) that's something to be thankful for.
