Many of you have been wondering where I have been, and have reached out to me.
I've been living through some very gutwrenching days. My Dad suffered a sudden and serious brain bleed a few weeks ago. Sadly, there was nothing the doctors at Mass General could do to repair the damage. He did not want to live in a incapacitated state, and it was a gift that he put it in writing. We didn't have to 'make' the decision to let him go. That doesn't mean, however, that letting go was any easier, less painful, or less sorrowful. Though I feel honored to have been able to be there for my Dad, our pal and our biggest cheerleader- through it all, including as he passed, it doesn't diminish my heart ache.
I am easing back into the business end of my studio life, but I'm not ready to pick up a paint brush yet. If you have been waiting on a painting shipment, thank you for the understanding you have already shown. If you reached out, thank you. Your words and gestures have meant so much during this most difficult time.
For now, I'll just be over here, muddling through the best I can.
