  1. I like the new look. Good work.

A brilliant sun fading over the horizon; a tree spreading its bare branches up into a blue sky streaked with crimson; soft blankets of white snow enfolding sheathes of wheat; all of these descriptions may sound hackneyed; but not when they are being painted by an artist friend of mine on the barren and brick stuccoed wall of my kitchen.

  4. Ricky,
