Yes, I'm still alive. Sorry for the lack of content (for those of you who check in occasionally looking for something new). I'm all moved in to my new condo and the old place is officially sold and gone. I've now been spending just about all of my free time painting at my new place and at a friend's soon to be purchased condo. I've been painting so much now that when I go to sleep I dream about painting. And they're not even interesting painting dreams - just totally mundane dreams about painting a wall.
I'll try to put up some pictures of my new place soon.
