Standing in for Mark for this post is his wife. You know, the one who so often looks at one of his finished paintings and says, "I love it all, but for that little splash of white there," to which Mark replies, "That's exactly what makes it sing to me!" And I usually come around to appreciating the splash of white in time, though occasionally the splash of white will be softened to appease me.

Mark is currently in the hospital, having had his appendix removed Friday afternoon. Pesky little things, appendix. What purpose do they serve, anyway? If you can do just as well without them, then why the heck do we have them in the first place? Be that as it may, my poor boy's appendix was quite angry - I believe the semi-technical term is "hot." And so the hospital is where he will remain until Monday. I don't know how much time he will have to recover before being able to stand in front of an easel for hours on end. I would suggest you will likely see a few small, simple pieces in another week or so. It may be a while before he can tackle anything as complex as the hounds. And so this site is temporarily on hold due to technical difficulties. Please keep Mark in your thoughts and I know he'd love to hear from you via comments to this post.
