I know I haven't been around here much over the last several weeks. I wish I could say that I have begun 2013 with a feeling of renewal and energy, but it has not been the case. Although some painting has been done and our studio is progressing, little else has been accomplished. Right before the holiday, I caught this horrible flu that has been going around. Directly after the new year, I lost someone very dear to me. Now I am taking a rest, so I can move forward and recover much-needed energy. I will be listing new little paintings in my Etsy shop, if you are interested to see what I have been creating.
