2 bits of exciting news to share

a demo painting for my recent painting workshop
and an almost packed box

Sorry...didn't mean to leave you hanging for my news. its just been...well you know kind of crazy here. Newsflash....we have bought a house and are moving! we are staying in the Bay area but a bit closer to everything. What is exciting about our new house, is (drum roll) I get my very own studio (fan fare and streamers are raining down) and there is a separate office and pool.....ah what bliss. what else do you need? the rest of the house is pretty great too. my head has been thinking of all the decorating possibilities. we are counting down the days now (less than 2 weeks) and there are boxes everywhere in the house. is there such a thing as organized chaos?

And my other exciting news is that the Darling Brenda Grace has asked me to come over to WA in February to do a workshop stint....journaling and painting workshops are on the list. yippee!! Shall keep you up to date with more details on that one.

I am loving my new camera. I took this shot of the jet stream from the car. my old camera would have had a heart attach if I'd even mentioned that idea. but the new girl is magnificent. don't know why it took me so long to get a new camera..too many choices. but I am very happy now.
looking forward to a long and fulfilling relationship with my new love.
