End of May 2016 Update

We recently passed our one-year anniversary at our new house. Best year of my life!
Robotic surgery at the end of March followed by eight weeks recovery - no vacuuming or lifting more than 10 lbs. Without this, I would never have known what a great vacuumer Jay is! I could not be happier with the results of my surgery. On Mother's Day, I got a kayak and a pink dogwood tree!

I've cut back on gallery commitments, paint only when I want to, garden and play online Words With Friends with my adult children. Additional track lighting in my studio. I'm happy.

During my years of teaching art I learned so much by sharing my trials and errors in several mediums. Now, I'm coming out of retirement to teach an end-of-summer workshop for Northwest Pastel Society. To warm up, I'm also teaching four one-day workshops at my Studio in July.

Jay is walking Annie so it is quiet here. When I first sat down to write this post, I planned on an introspective theme about painting but now the sunshine on this Memorial Day is calling me for my morning walk around the garden. I wish you every blessing for a great summer.
