Still the same indifferent weather – the air raw and damp –
A.M. – Decided to send the “Late Winter Radiance” to the B.S.A. + Patteran show at the gallery – Put it in a frame and sealed it.
P.M. – Sprayed and scrubbed out a portion of the “Retreat of Winter”, the part at the Black Hollow – which has to be entirely repainted –
Evening – Bertha ‘dug out’ some photos to be sent to Nordners – Too bad I am not more photogenic!
Evening – Sinfonia Concertantes by Mozart + Haydn – In this case, Haydn comes off best.
