    I always let you all know when I start a new painting. My job here at the museum has morphed into some kind of dream job.

    My duties now include sitting on the floor with all the exhibits, in a chair and painting! I am there to interact with the guests. I get paid to paint, and talk about painting (among other things). WooT!

    So, the first painting I am doing while working (getting a salary, paid leave, sick days, retirement...all while i paint? I still am not sure it isnt a dream) is this one attached. I am continuing the mechanical / organinc combinations as they seem to be catching on.

    So...here tis!

    What great news Mike! Getting paid to do what you loves is truly unusual, but if anyone deserves it it's you. Hey, you brought most of us together. Pipes to U clamps, interesting.

    Hey, I just finished a book called Cartoon County by Cullen Murphy, son of John Cullen Murphy, who drew Prince Valiant. It was a great read that you might enjoy.
