I finished the snake beast and I'm posting this less then perfect photo because Linder, my sister liked it and I'm a sucker for flattery of any kind. So here it is Linder, I wanted you to see the details and comment.

OK, this is a nameless and incomplete snake demon. He's (or she's) 18X36 inches. I went thru several changes with this one. Originally I painted the background red, but then realized it was way too bright, especially with the funny yellow design I had added (now all gone). I had the idea to base the painting on paisley color patterns. But I gave it up for more harmonious colors. It's not done yet, but it's now in the final phase.
Oh, and I apologize for the very very bad photo.

I just received an email from a young woman from Galicia. Thank God she can write in English because my Gallego is pretty bad. No, I admit, my gallego is at the level of a 6 month old baby. And my Castilian is about the level of a 6 YEAR old child. But forgive me, I've only been studying Spanish for 20 years!
I have finished...and sold...the painting called Fishing. Here it is. It's a small painting, 6 inches by 18 inches. So my theory that painting small did pan out.
Noelia, pan out means that it was a good idea, that it worked.
