Catching Up

First of all, many thanks to my wonderful friends and artist pals who keep me going.  Nothing is more delightful (especially during my daily grind) to see an email that says I have a new blog comment!  It inspires and compels me to get my act together.  I am so flattered you take the time to "cheer-lead."  Finding out that art is indeed truly humbling and takes a strong attitude to venture into the space.  Most artists, I think, have no choice -- they just gotta do what they do - to the delight and admiration of their patrons.  I guess I'm like that, but my engineer head keeps arguing with my artistic side.  Need them to play nicely together!

In the good news department, the Art at the Mill envelope arrived.  Frankly, it is still scary to open the letter. . . .   Answer, get spouse to open, review, present and deliver the "news."  My guy is really fantastic at that!  Job well done. 

A little side story - the Glazed Pear Royale was his favorite so I said months ago, "we can hang this in your space until it needs to go."  When the results came in he said, "I have to have it and buying it now."  Lucky guy and smart guy 'cause he literally sent me the PayPal payment in a blink of an eye!  Errr, no debate from me.

The others are off to the show - I already miss Frilly Lily.  Will be happy if it sells, yet delighted if she finds her way back home.

To see details on the show and schedule, click here.  Opening day is Saturday, April 26th. 

I've been experimenting a bit recently and will be posting a few paintings later this week.  Hopefully, I'm back on track - cannot believe it's been a month.  

Thanks for hanging in there with me.  Till then,
