Sometimes the most difficult part of posting in my blog is trying to tell you what I am thinking. I switch my thoughts from right brain painting thoughts to left brain technical thoughts uploading the image and dealing with hard wired computer brains locked inside a metal box.

All this pink, will it translate as light? Need to seat the bottle, it's floating . . .
