The time, how she do fly

Time flies, whether you’re having fun or not.


Just about twenty or so years ago right out in front of this house in which I now sit, and which my husband and I are about to vacate, I took this photo of this little guy (my nephew) who was visiting from California, along with his Mom (my sis) just as they had put some pennies on the railroad track so that the train would squish them into little copper pancakes.

Two weeks from today that very same although now not-so-little guy, all grown up, and his beautiful fiancée will be married.

Congratulations, Scott & Julie!

A new chapter


Ellie commission in progress (detail) • 12 x 16 inches • oil on cradled GessobordTM

Exciting news! After eleven months working with our same buyers, we finally closed the sale on our house this week, so we’ve been busy packing and cleaning, and planning continued work on the little old farmhouse which is going to be our new home. 

Yesterday over breakfast my husband asked me what I had on my plate for the day. I told him that I was going to pack up the last bit of my studio stuff, but first I really need to scan the ‘Ellie the cat’ painting so I could send her mom an update on the progress. After a couple of seconds he said, “So what you’re saying is that you have a cat-scan scheduled for this morning?”

I laughed so hard coffee almost came out my nose.
