After being kidnapped while backpacking through Venezuela, I’ve spent the last week escaping mercenaries. I’ve lived off the land like Bear Grylls and had to take down some undesirables using those black belt ninjitsu skills that I always hoped I’d never have to bust out. At one point, I thought I might have to eat my own hand but luckily I was able to kill a wild boar by strangulation. Ok, that’s all bullshit. But I have been really sick this week and only worked two days which results in very slow progress on the Singer Sargent drawing. Anyway, here’s where I’m at.
