Just a further update that due to a hard drive crash, I'm still trying to get back into gear! Although I got the hard drive replaced, got the computer home, and started reinstalling software, a new mystery sound is sending my iMac back to the repair shop tomorrow.

I trust my persistence will pay off, but until I can post, I hope all is going well for you and am wishing all the readers of my blog a great start in the new year.

Really sorry to hear about your computer problems Mona - hope you can get it all straightened out soon. Looking forward to seeing your new work!

We miss you Mona. Computers are a blessing when they work and a curse when they don't!! Look forward to when you are up and running again xx

Tracy and Karen, thanks so much for noticing I was missing in action, it really helps to have moral support! I'm having some back trouble too this wk., but am returning the computer this afternoon (fingers crossed!)

Hi Mona,
I just came back from seeing the Florida Miniature show....I am VERY amazed you did not get an award on the little girl at the piano! It is sensational in real life, although it was great fun seeing the progress reports. There were a number of people there and I heard some people talking about Egg Tempera, and trying to find the ET paintings that they had seen but couldn't find again. I sent them to your paintings. They were totally entranced by your work too. My friend Helen Mathyssen Dobbins had 5 pieces in the show and has sold 3. I am once again all enthused to try a miniature...but this happens every time I go to that show. Who year I might have a piece entered.
Congratulations again. It was so much fun to see your work today.

Mona, How frustrating. Hope you get it all together.
Great postings of the children art.
Very well done.

Gary, thanks for your compliment about the portrait drawings. Just got the computer back today, so i hope to be able to post once I have reinstalled some key software.

Gainor, thanks so much for your compliments on my miniature portrait and other entries, and for pointing my work out to others at the MASF show. I'm so glad to know that you got to see the show this year, and hope to see some of your work in it next time too!
