  1. I knew it!!!! I was thinking the other day about you saying you wanted to do this series and kind of had a hunch you might post one today. Beautiful, Stephen. Beautiful. You captured it.

    • Hi Leslie – I was a bit nervous about it all because I have not painted as much as I wanted to this year – so I didn’t tell anyone – thanks so much for the support here – this is very hard

  2. Did you do this with your church members watching? Very brave! And very moody and evocative. Wonderful work!

    • Yes – it was more difficult to focus than I thought it would be – but everyone was very supportive so it was a great exercise. We had a prayer watch at the church and everything quietened down from about ten oclock and I was able to work till half past one in the morning. Next day I was a bit wrecked though. Nice to see you here
