A friend stopped by the studio yesterday, and purchased the sculpture- 'Is there Life after Death?' He'd been compelled to buy it, following a family bereavement, It was genuinely moving. He proudly displays it as a token reminder, alongside the Yosemite piece I painted.
Such things are hugely vindicating- worth more than pieces of gold, and all the column inches I could ever hope to inhabit.
It's belting down like the 'Long Rain' in 'The Illustrated Man', and I'm battling the beginnings of a cold. Lani is too, so it looks like New Year festivities will be subdued from the comfort of our home-TV and hot toddy's.
I can't think of a better way to see out this year frankly.
