I’m Back, finally

It seems like forever since I’ve posted. We had an amazing time in D.C., walking our legs off going to museums and monuments everyday. To say it was inspiring would be an understatement. I have not even uploaded the pictures yet, just trying to catch up on home-life and things first. I did finish this piece. I saw so many beautiful works of art my head is simply swimming. I was itching to get back in my studio and put some sketches to good use. This one is titled ‘Remember‘.

On the home front, we came home to the upsetting news that my step mom has Breast Cancer. We won’t know anything more until Friday, but I would so appreciate your prayers. My family has been through this battle before, twice with my dad and once with my step dad, all with good outcomes, so we are being as positive as we can about the battle ahead.

I have much more to share, but not much time today, I am getting ready for a speaking engagement with the Southwest Missouri Art Teachers Association this Saturday. The president of the assoc asked me to demonstrate some art journal techniques after reading my article in Somerset’s Art Journaling. I am looking forward to this opportunity.
