11:26 AM: following our 6am morning walk, we stopped by the studio on the way back to the house so that mikela could give me some feedback on motion 28, which she hadn't seen since i worked on it yesterday. she loved the painting, and especially the rocks in the foreground, but some marks from the under-drawing were bothering her. can you take those out, she asked? but of course i responded. BELOW: before (left) and after the revisions. she was right again!
