Oh, that's right, I have a blog! I am not a natural at keeping up a blog but am going to try to do better to connect with people this way. My last post was several months ago and much of the delay I will blame on the fact that in early February, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and thrown quickly into treatment beginning with chemo. This has greatly affected my ability to get work done in my studio which I miss but do what I am able for now.
To start with, here is a throw-back picture of the show at Tamarack that I was invited to exhibit in which started the very week I started chemo. My daughter came to be with me and, although I wasn't feeling the greatest, we were able to show her the beautiful facility in our state called Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia and the exhibit in the David L. Dickirson gallery there. The exhibit, titled, "Then and Now" featured works of Tamarack artists from the beginning of their art form to now. The painting on the left in this photo is from my college years and the one on the right was recently painted. (They are also featured in my website gallery.)
I will do my best to post more regularly. I'm going to keep it short for today and hope to get to my studio and have more to share about my work soon. However, I may also write about more about my personal life in this space so you can know me a little better. I do hope you'll follow my blog, and I'd love to hear from you!
