Away to California



whew....what a week!!! The article caused a definite stir.....and oh what fun it was :-) The best part was all the wonderful, sweet comments. It's so refreshing that so many people are in the same boat as me and are living their dream and/or striving to the point not giving up their passion. Many folks said that it inspired them, but one thing I do know is that all of these wonderful souls who took time out to leave their touching words, left me emotional at times. We are both tackling it everyday....staying persistent....keep on keeping on. go get that dream of yours! I love you all...............


I'm leaving in the morning to go to an art retreat in California and am taking a class with the lovely kelly rae roberts and mati rose. I'm so excited. I also get to see Chrissy again!! double yay!!! I cannot wait to see that smile of hers.
I need this breath now. A time to reflect and let the paint flow. I need the smile of other kindred souls. I need to breathe in nature and take in a bit of sunshine.
