8-11-2018  Got an email from my friend Jennifer that she had recently mailed 3 of the 4  pigeons in Japan in 3 different cities — Hiroshima ( her mother was a survivor ), Kyoto, and one other.  So I am back to  ” scanning the skies ” for their return to my mailbox. Yahoo !

This website hit a new record in July of over 435 visitors.  I would guess many of you are painters too.  It is frustrating at times for me to try and get down on paper the image in my mind —->but also a lot of fun when I get close enough to recognize it.  Send me a link to your artwork if you like and I will mention it in this blog.
