Spy painter

I worked for 4.5 hours today on the project for a friend's wedding. I'm about half done after 2 months. Since I've got 2 months to go, everything is on track.

Earlier this week, CBC's As It Happens interviewed James Hart Dyke, who finished a series of paintings from a year spent shadowing MI6, the British spy service. It was their centenniary, so they hired him to do the work. Now he's finished, and the results are breathtaking. I've such longing, looking at these. To be a better artist. To have more time and courage to pursue the craft. To have the money to buy his works, even if just a print.

Time to go get Ada.
