In the thick of things

 Things are really cooking in the studio now.  I've got lots going on and look forward to sharing them with you soon.   A preview of things to come.  I will get better photos soon.  I promise.

February: I'm back!

It's good to be back in the studio.  Like most folks, life gets busy.  Holidays, birthdays, kids, life.  Between last September (has it been that long since my last blog post?) and now, life has been non-stop.  On a great note, my studio got a terrific upgrade. I have heat! And lights!  And insulation! And freshly painted drywall on which to hang paintings! I'm truly excited.  

It took a few months for the studio renovation to happen, and I have to admit that not much painting got done.  I had to move completely out of my studio and stick everything out in the garage.  

For a while my studio looked like this:

 I love my renovated space.  And now, I'm happy to get back to work.
