Pile Nine More on the Pyre


























Yup, gone, gone, gone, solid gone. At least I have these photos to scan. It feels good to gather these images together on my blog - it's sort of like having a little digital Day of the Dead parade...
I deeply regret not documenting my Monhegan Residency portrait series. I don't quite know why I didn't. Probably due in part to low self confidence and thinking that they were not good enough. Probably due also in part to feeling overwhelmed at that time with Lisbeth's care.

That painting of Matthew is really wonderful, Martha. I think I've mentioned that to you before. I'm glad that you posted these here, and I hope that you will continue working with the figure!

Regards,

Ron
