IT'S A BIG ONE!
The painting featured in the photograph has now been carefully and stoutly packaged, and it will begin its journey to the man who commissioned it (who lives in the outskirts of Stockholm) with a short trip to the office of Streamline Shipping tomorrow. According to the information on the Royal Mail Parcelforce website, the package will exceed their acceptable dimensional limits for transportation by about half a metre. This is regrettable, as the carrier will probably charge more, but it can't be helped.
I'm sorry for the fact that I have become a stranger to my own blog recently. I just haven't had the time to post, as there has always seemed to be something making more imperative demands on my attention than putting together some readable posts for this journal. This is something I take quite seriously. If I can't put anything worth reading together (and there are many subjects I want to address in these pages), I'd rather leave it until I can devote more time to the exercise.
So it is with my usual abject apologies (as well as some relief that I have posted anything at all!), that I leave you with the image of the "Force 9 Following Sea", which, along with the dimensions of 36"L x 53"H, is all I was given by way of instructions from my client. From his response to the images I have sent him, I think he is pleased with it! I hope to be able to post more regularly soon, and I thank you for your patience.
