I've been out of commission for about five weeks!  Yikes!  I won't go into the details but am very glad to be back and starting to paint again.  I realize how very much painting means to me and " so it goes" as Kurt Vonnegut might say.  I"m getting ready now for Art A Whirl, the big art crawl in NE Minneapolis May 15, 16, and 17..  Also the Art Market, sponsored by Norhtstar Watermedia Society will be May 29 and 30.  This sale will be in the State Fair Grounds at the Fine Arts Building.  If you attend either of these happenings, I think you will be amazed at the art that exists in our twin cities.  I'm hoping to start plein-air painting soon which simply means getting outside, setting up your easel and going at it!!!!!  Today is a bit cold out so I"m spending the time with you on the computer.  Take care and I hope to meet you at the Art A Whirl and the Art Market!!
