It’s good to be home and slowly but surely catching up on work I missed! Hi everyone! I’m back!
One sunny afternoon I sat on my deck in Vancouver, brush in hand not knowing what to paint. I stared down at the piece of two by two foot freshly gessoed masonite board firmly planted on my lap.

And just a note and BIG thank you to everyone who has wished me a Happy Birthday via Etsy, Facebook, Twitter and email! Etsy and Facebook go so far as to program a Happy Birthday message into your dashboard in celebration of your special day!

The two above stood out from the rest. If you were looking for a nice smile the one below is best.
