Cruising Through Europe

Friday, September 2, 2016:

Since the middle of August, my husband and I have been on a river cruise starting in Bucharest, Romania and which will end next week in Amsterdam, Netherlands.  I feel like I have been away for months, most likely because we have met so many wonderful people whom we feel we have known forever.  The charming European towns along the Danube (and soon the Rhine) have drenched my senses with happiness, healthfulness, excitement, and inspiration.  I am eager to get back into my studio to see what these new experiences will look like on canvas and paper!  See Easel Tales for photos of some sights that have inspired me.

Wednesday, June 8, 2016:

I am currently showing my work in a few different places, which are listed in Exhibits and Shows.  You can also learn about some of my upcoming shows, some of which last only a day.  If you have some free time and are in that neck of the woods, drop in for a peek.
