A glimpse (at left) of a huge, exhaustively researched two-canvas work, which is being painted on the last two pieces of the best artist's linen in the world. Loren worked at Utrecht for many years.

WOW, Martin,
Thanks so much for the attention. The photos are great, your new camera is really working out well. I don’t notice while I’m working but the pics make the studio seem cramped. You’re welcome back for margaritas, burgers and tots any time, LOREN

Tots? Small children? Or, oh no, is that another British word I don't know?
