If you write a newsletter, are you struggling to come up with your own true title, different from others? This is a topic that a group of online presenters has been discussing. Instead of Mid-Season Studio Updates I want to use just one word, which makes it a bit challenging. If it were completely to the point it would be “communication”. True but dull.
Happy Valentine Day to you. Love is in the air. It makes me think of where and when, who and what, I love and cherish. In this virtual moment on this airway, I send love to your direction at mid-winter. (more…)
In our passive solar designed front room at mid-winter it is full of the returning light, it’s our favorite time for being indoors. Fingers crossed that it will be sunny for the next Sunwise Open Studio Event on February 2. The theme is Valentines. You are welcome to make your own from materials supplied in the studio. (more…)
My art friend, Patti Edmon had a great idea to post her best artworks from 2018, so I followed suit with two categories, color and black and white. What are your nine best? (more…)
My 50th year as an artist comes to a close as I write the last post, about the years 2017 – 2018. It’s with a sense of accomplishment that I complete this series, reptrospective, 23 posts in all.

The collector who bought this treasures it and I’m happy for her, but darn, I wish I still had this! (more…)
The 10th Annual Autumn Open Studio took place on a brilliantly bright day. One year we had snow, but still art tourists came. This time everyone smiled all day because of the warmth and beauty.

Celebrating Mid-Autumn 2018, Studio Update
