Two paintings -- one oil, one watercolor -- getting ready for two different shows. The watercolor show is in May and slides are due in May for the show I am trying to get the oil painting in. About slides --- now try to get your slides done in less than two weeks!!!! With digital cameras, slides are nearly obsolete. Digital takes much better pictures, but some shows still want your slides. I'm still not all that well versed in computer technology, but even I can see when some things are out of date.
