    Very nice painting, Boran. One to be proud of.

    I had anticipated getting up early to paint this morning, starting on a panoramic summer image. But I'm still a bit too traumatized. I'll aim for this afternoon.

    I've been in practice for nearly 30 years and I've seen almost eveything, to the extent that I have very well developed emotional calluses. But last night in the ER I had to work on a toddler who had been fatally struck by a car, with the parents at the bedside. It doesn't get much harder than that in medicine.

    Of course, that's a large part of why I paint. There's enough grimness in the world that I love to celebrate the beautiful parts when I can.
