Well. What an unusual season this has been for me! Normally before my winter show, I am pumping out canvas after canvas, and this year I can barely focus.

For those of you who do not know, I am a yoga teacher by trade and losing my precious voice meant cancelling classes today. I spent most of the day resting, but finally I … Continue reading Sick Day = Paint Day
