The computer issue is settled for now. I picked up my machine from the shop last week and, so far, things are going well. The main lesson learned is to back up, back up, back up everything and right away. I can't afford to wait, let lots of important data build up only to disappear into the ether with a hard drive crash again. I became complacent before and can't let that happen again. I lost nine months of photographs, along with updates to my artist statement amongst other things. Luckily, some of the photos do exist in smaller resolution online, but I do have them. The good in all of this is that the computer crashing did not impact my paintings and other works.
New work is brewing in the studio again. It's coming along in fits and starts, but it's happening at least.
