Gosh, this 2009 of mine has had no end of hindrances and hurdles. I haven't felt my world to be this out of control since I experienced my first labor pains with my daughter Kate, years ago in Scotland. But this is life---and I'll take it just the way it is. The good news is my elderly mother seems, again, to be improving and we are taking her out of the rehab center and returning her home tomorrow! She's in great spirits and will be well cared for at home. Please keep all good thoughts speeding her way.
I actually grabbed a couple of ten minute interludes in the studio the past few days, in between trips to Mother's hometown. These involved the use of paintbrushes and the beginning, at long last, of koi paintings! Yay!!
So, here's the lick and the promise: some quick peeks at what is going on in the studio and an overview, literally, of latest foody sketches for the book.
