Thank you for your kind thoughts regarding my digital disaster the other day. Rather than to start a whole new idea from scratch, I returned to my original sketch and decided to finish it in detail, then "tint" the sketch (set the brush at 50%) rather than to do the unusual time-consuming painting. The only part of the original painting that survived is the Illustration Friday thumbnail. That's what Jacquie was working on when the disaster occurred. www.bronsmith.com/trowbridge
There have been worse disasters. I have 72ed more than one entire map for a client before. That always sets me back emotionally for a while. Those are the times when I question having ever entered the digital realm.
