A poem for the Rhino painting:

Through his eye we see
a wilderness,
dry bones,
the sky.

We see a tree,
then die.

I see you,
through his eye.

Framing today and new frames for The Art of Painting, Spear of Destiny and one of the medium sized ones, either Dead Bird or No Good Ideas. The second glazing layer to the curious Judith Beheading Holofernes picture has been completed and tomorrow I begin work on a large painting of Albion.

The exhibition season is here now too with my first paintings of the year on show over the weekend in the Cheshire village of Marbury. Soon after that I'll be exhibiting in Bunbury, and entering a picture for an exhibition in Birkenhead.

Things have been quiet regarding music and game development although some new music tracks and sound effects for IndieSFX are being compiled; it's normal for such things to be constantly in progress with a steady train of new sound content there.

New inventions include a sonar proof coating for submarine equipment that consists of lots of fine hairs, like a sea cucumber. A slow but quiet engine would be important, a hydrodynamic drive perhaps.
