Down week of painting, sick with a cold and so on......I wonder what happens to my energy to paint and am grateful for my usual fountain of creative ideas and motivation.  It is so surprising to me how much I take my health for granted and then wham I get sick and the fountain goes dry and so on and on.  I'll share a few of my sick paintings maybe later.....I'll work on them some more.  I'm off to Florida for a week and a half, palm trees, flowers, warmth, etc....not to mention ocean.  Next opportunity at Northrup King is the first Thursday of April 5-9, and Saturdays 12-4 and don't forget if you haven't seen the Masters Manipulation Show at the Hopkins Art Center, it will be there until April 8th.  It is definitely worth seeing.
