It has been a busy summer, late fall around here and I need to get back to painting! Things have started to calm down some and everyone is back on schedule for the time being (except me). I work in a pretty small studio, 12ft. by 16ft. or thereabouts. Somehow I manage to paint, store … More Time to Clean Up, Again!!!!!
Where does the time go??? I can’t believe how long it has been since my last post here. So much has been going on that has kept me out of the studio and focused on family, holidays, and other obligations I just haven’t been able to paint much. I take that last part back, I … More It’s Been A While!

Looking out my back door… you can’t tell from this but it was raining. Well, I have to say I cannot believe it is June already. I have been busier than than ever, but not much happening in the studio lately. The Art Fair I exhibited in a few weeks ago was very disappointing, … More Trying to keep up!
