You and I must wait. Yesterday I put several hours into the painting "Pond." I have no energy in me to work on it today. So, I'll do other stuff, make a drawing, go for a ride or walk. I will make at least one drawing, because I need the fix for the day.

This last burst of refinement will wait till my energy returns (I'm guessing Tuesday or Wednesday - today is Sunday). I will photograph its current state today so you can see what it looks like before the final finish is applied. The photo of "Pond" in its current state will be posted tomorrow.
