Blogging brings with it some interesting emails and contact with random people who have an interest in some of the subjects I've written about. I've been contacted by 3 people this year asking for information about Chester Loomis and his paintings. They all own work by him or represent someone who is trying to sell his work. They sent me images, which I share here with you. The first image is, clearly, pretty spectacular -- very large, with great handling of the light. If you read SDL's memoirs again, at the end I included letters that she wrote from Cartaret, describing the scenery -- just as pictured here.
