Oh, happy day! My computer, before it had its nervous breakdown earlier this year, absolutely refused to recognize some of my old disks. Now I pop in a disk and voilà!—some old files I’d thought were lost forever are back again.
I worked on Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians, by my pal Jackie Mims Hopkins a few years ago. I’d just gotten a digital camera and was beginning to document the progress of my paintings. Here’s one scene where I’m painting the inside of the libearians’ house. Goldie Socks settles down to read a book in a couch that’s too soft. At the end of the sequence, Goldie is still only an underpainting. I’ll come back later and paint her into every scene.
