I want to thank everyone so so much for all of the support. This was my best year by far, when it came to selling work. I have never felt so missed, respected and loved. It was a treasure to come back to the shows and see the people I'd gotten so used to seeing every year. At first, I thought it was going to be the other artists that I missed most but I quickly realized that I've connected to some very special people through the work I make. It is all so wonderful and bizarre. But now winter is here, the wind is howling outside my studio and it's time to get back to work.

On the road again....... here we come Denver. Cherry Creek was moved to Sept (you know because Covid was supposed to be over with!) I'll be parked at Booth #201 with my mask on, fully vaccinated, ready to sell you art. Here's the website.
It's been hot and heavy in the garden and I've been making the most out of garden pests by capturing them and bringing them into the studio. I found 6 tomato hornworms on our 60 or so plants, to that's not too bad. They are so darn wondrous and beautiful to paint. Man, do they poop a lot (painted that too)

It's been so long since I've been in an art show and so we've been waiting patiently for the first one to be confirmed. And it has! Old Town Art Fair in Chicago is June 12-13. Visit their website.
I am thrilled to get a chance to set up my booth again. My husband, Andy, and I were getting very used to being homebodies and toiling away in our studios. As the weather started on warm up, we were only half looking forward to hitting the road again. It seems we were getting used to the idea of hunkering down on the farm. But once I heard that the show was on, I felt a volt of excitement flush through my body. I can't wait to see my artist friends and show everything I've been making.
