Getting back in the swing of things, I think (and it feels SO good!). Here's #2 for the year.

Painting is Better Than Just About Anything

I haven’t been this happy in about 6 months! Painting is better than just about anything. And I’m pretty happy with everything else, yet almost all the rest of it just does NOT compare!

Learning to work with acrylic — what a medium! I…

More Recent Work
