      Thank you, Katherin. It’s one of the few paintings of mine that I truly feel could make a nice art print. Most of my subject matter is food related. I’m actually planning to see if I can sell prints of this one. I’ll let you know how it goes!

  2. Dear Judy,

    I hope that life has treated you reasonably well, and that the summer heat has not been too overwhelming.

    You camellias are so luscious indeed!

    By the way, I have just fixed the link that will take you to the brand new “Conclusions” section that I mentioned in my latest reply to you at my post “🏛️⚖️ The Facile and Labile Nature of Law: Beyond the Supreme Court and Its Ruling on Controversial Matters 🗽🗳️🔫🤰🧑‍🤝‍🧑💉”. Hopefully, you will find something to your liking in the “Conclusions”.

    Wishing you a wonderfully productive August doing, enjoying or blogging whatever that satisfies you the most!

    Yours sincerely,
