it’s taken me a while to comment; I seem to be having technical difficulties! any who, I do love me a good rant and this was a humdinger! I snorted my coffee out my nose over the “halo around the head means he’s a saint” and borrowing your mother’s assessment of folks who have a firm grasp of the obvious!
as always, even though I have no ability to draw, much less paint, I study all your tutorial pictures carefully and am in awe of your talent. Yiu make it look so easy I think I need to go buy masking fluid fir god knows what!
