Seriously can’t believe it’s been a whole month since my last blog. Crazy, crazy! Went to Texas in mid-February to visit Mom (conveniently) during our first realtor open house. A total blur, but getting into the routine of living and maintaining “pristine” while the house is on the market. So far, so good. A HUGE part of me loves this minimalist environment, lack of “stuff” and amazing calmness having everything in its place. . . . er, not that I can remember where anything is anymore!
On a separate note, my wonderful art club is still keeping me focused – we have painting challenges and meet ups about once a month. It is a cherished event so we all make it a priority no matter what else is going on. This month’s challenge was to paint something abstract. Luckily I’m still riding the high of Lisa Daria’s workshop and took a stab at painting Viacheslav’s Small Bouquet 2 (see January blog entry - From Russia with Love) in a totally abstract manner. Lisa picks interesting names, so thought I would try that too. Here it is. What do you think? Should I try this abstract thing some more?

Enjoy, life is joy we make one moment at a time.
