...working to set up studio for fall painting WOO HOO! Summer, as most artist moms I know can attest to, is a flap-about with kids and the creative juices are often left cold, not even simmering...I learned long ago not to fight it, go with the flow.

In my experience, summer's adventures, heat, breezy boredom, fresh food, poison ivy, buggy bike rides, books, sea and mountain air, stubbed toes, muddy dogs, playing in the grass, routines and unstructured rigamarole somehow influence the art I produce in the fall...it all comes out in the end!

So, with the last shreds of summer, and especially after divorce, the material I've compiled is beginning to simmer...Can't wait.
