Too many kind gestures from friends far and wide, since I lost my Dad. Including this beautiful work (left) by one of my favorite artists and people, @amystoneart . The tag alone brought tears to my eyes. "Art is the only way to run away without leaving home." -Twyla Tharp

Soon.

For now, my sincere gratitude for all the love and kindness you have shown me.

PS - serendipitous that the painting Any sent me, goes so perfectly with one of my own from the Winter, that I decided to keep.

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.

What a crazy few days. We have water finally, and praying that is how it remains. Of you have any pull upstairs, put in a good word for us. These are all part of my #30daysofcreativeexpressions. Looking forward to time in the studio in the morning.

On that note, over and out. See you on the flip side.

25/30 of #30daysofcreativeexpressions
A bit of visual joy on our 29th anniversary, which has been a trying day with well pump issues for the gazzillionth time and Gman in and out of well house making repairs. That said, we may not have water, BUT the champagne is chilling. AND I had enough water left in my studio glass to get this little bouquet painted.

You gotta roll with the punches peeps, in and out of the studio. And keep champagne in stock. 'how long has it been?'

Loved my studio time today, but I need to get outside in the yard and soak up some sun and more inspiration.
