Thank you to all my friends and family who came to my show at the St Stephen's Lutheran Church in Bloomington.  It was a happy moment in my life.  And it turned out that the Women's Press magazine came out with my painting on the cover and an interview inside.  what a thrill.  Then I came down with a cold and now I haven't one iota of passion to paint.  I hope that doesn't last too long. Life is chock full of surprises.   I'll write again when I recover.
