Well, the bad news is that I had to buy a new computer a few weeks ago. The good news is that I discovered that much of the software problems I was dealing with must have been the start of my computer dying. With the new computer I can actually blog without much difficulty!
This year has been a very busy one for our family. I am now represented by three galleries that are keeping me pretty busy. As a result I didn't have time to enter any mini shows this year. Hopefully, next year I will be able to do so. In addition, I spent considerable time this year planting a perennial garden. I planted may of the old favorites such as hollyhocks, zinnias, delphiniums and of course lilac trees. I have been wanting to spend some time painting victorian inspired still life pieces and thought it would be fun to incorporate my own flowers. I can never do anything the easy way!
Just today I mailed my last commission for Christmas presents. As a result I cannot show my latest works for fear of messing up someones surprise. I can however, show you my favorite work of art, my 3-1/2 week old grandson. Isn't he beautiful? Not that I am a proud grandmother. No, not me. I may have to do a miniature portrait of him.
Till next time,
