I Can Wait No More!

Hello, my Dear Friends!

I have been away so long, I am probably long forgotten. The reason I had gone private is still not resolved, but I must do what heals me. Writing this blog is an outlet, and a solace for me.  This is necessary, for I am still caring for my Dad. So, here I am!

I will try to catch you up on good changes in my life: I started showing my artwork in various local exhibitions, some juried… And in three months time I have recieved three third place ribbons, and an Award of Merit from a local Art Museum. My head has puffed up so big!!!

  Thank you, all who have encouraged me for so long! I am posting some pictures of a few recent pieces now… Prepare to laugh!
