Chiru

This book is finally done. I haven't yet counted how many years it took to finish, but a lot of life happened amongst these paintings, including the miraculous recovery of a broken hand, so despite everything I'm most proud of this book more than any. It'll be out in the fall, titled now The Chiru of High Tibet. The story is by the exquisite master of words, Jacqueline Briggs Martin, who also wrote The Water Gift

I'm so glad to see you're still painting... these look wonderful.

That stint in the basement sounds a bit on the dark side... here in Seattle the only way to survive the winter is to escape into one's imagination.

Long lost friends, a pleasant surprise that you found these! Many thanks. The basement is a wonderful basement, even if dark. More on that in a bit.
