Hmmmm......I haven't posted a blog for a while.

That's because I'm ..... resting.

While workshops have been ongoing throughout the summer, I do try to take a break from weekly classes during July and August so I can travel and rest. I spend so much time on the road, teaching, dragging paintings around to exhibitions and entering national competitions, that I find myself near exhaustion by June.

So, I've been re-charging my battery in anticipation of the start of classes.

I've been day dreaming, thinking, painting en plein aire, playing with the cats, gardening.... all of this restful activity will guide my thinking and planning and will make me a better (rested) teacher and a thoughtful painter.
