So….this happened.

Jul 23, 2022

The Jasper Project is our local arts advocate. Cindi Boiter and her team have created a trusted source of support for the arts here in our community.

I am so proud that they included me with this very kind article. I hope you will enjoy it. I’m blushing.

I have been painting every day this week. Trip to the coast postponed. High temperatures and high gas prices brought me to my senses.

PLUS, something happened in the studio. I want to stay here and try to recreate a really cool effect I got in a painting this week. There is so much promise in this one little painting. Will show it to you next week. I don’t want to jinx it.

Until next week….I’ll be painting,


P.S. Thank you sincerely for following along with my painting practice. It is a pleasure to share it with you. Your comments and encouragement continue to inspire me. If you know anyone who would also enjoy it, now would be a great time to forward this to them. They can subscribe here.

      Thanks, Roxanne. Christina Xan was the author of the article, but she used many quotes. I thought it was a really great article, if I may say so! Miss you.
