Other News: I compiled my thoughts on Daily Painting for publication on the Massachusetts College of Art and Design's Illustration Blog, Drawn Onward here's an excerpt, 
"The benefit of creating one small painting a day stems from the act of routine as practice. Painting every day is not a new idea. I quickly found a lineage of painters I had already admired, like Charles Hawthorne and Edwin Dickinson who created ‘premier coup’ or ‘at first crack’ paintings – small observational works created in one sitting.2" . . .

Other News:  I attended Boston Harbor's SharkFest Swim on Saturday morning - I discovered it takes the same amount of time for me to drink a medium coffee as it does for those in first string of finishers to swim across the harbor. Surprisingly, no one had borrowed my stroke for the event - the doggy paddle. A little clip of what I saw - the one in front is an Olympic swimmer.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFxsK246bYs -
