A Dutch Barge

How about self-contained living on a Dutch Barge in France, 
floating all around the French/Dutch waterways,
 visiting the small and less-known villages?

At the same time, doing painting workshops with me?

This is my new 'big idea', and it will start in September with the purchase of a suitable barge, and some lessons in where to find the brakes on one of these things.

My new plans relate to this painting and to this blog:
(apart from my show in July, that is!)

Photo download problem...

I have been away from blogging, and feel that I must give an excuse: I am doing large works for a show in July: and my galley owner has asked that I not display them anywhere until the show opens. (I like his 'marketing' mind.)

So I am going to use this blog for a few rants for the time being.

I was just trying to copy 3 thousand very important time-lapse photos onto my mac, and I received a "jpeg error code -36"... and worse: every photo showed this error!
I was using a card reader (Belkin) and a Digitech USB hub... so I connected the USB straight from the reader to the computer, and problem solved: all pictures are OK and are now downloading...
Phew! (Just thought I'd share this in case it helps someone else...)

Moral: don't trust "hub" hardware!
