January is almost over and, while anticipating spring, I have started working on some florals...pretty soon the tulips will be out for real. Meanwhile, here is a small landscape adapted from a photo I took last summer. I am looking forward to a full year of painting with a workshop with Dreama Tolle Perry in March, travel to France in the spring, and then Italy in the fall, and my last week in Italy will be a workshop with Jerry Fresia on the shores of Lake Como. I am making choices that will compliment my living a full life. And, so, life is good, and I am very grateful.
