    Clive, what fun to share some qarrtsiluni-space with you, Elijah, and the Raven! It makes a grand conclusion to the issue.

    Hope lots of qarrtsilunians visit your site and meet your work…

    Just magical. The spotty mug, and flashes of echoed azure… and a feel of beaten metal and verdigris. I love this.

    A big thank you to all for the positive feedback about this painting. (The owners will be thrilled!) All praise to Dave and Beth for making a great job of using it as a springboard to a fascinating podcast. You two are a class act!
