The Show is Over, So Ramble on


Changes, always. And time for a few rambling thoughts...Time pushes us along in a rush, always to the next thing. The end of the Historic Ellicott City Show House at White Hall marks another shift, this time, back to the studio.





It has been a Summer filled with much time spent painting outdoors. As always, the coming Fall season means we must prepare for the lean times of Winter, so I retreat back to the warmth of the studio. 

Time once again to get back to my book, and other unfinished projects. I have always been blessed with hundreds of ideas, and am continually frustrated by not having time to complete them all.

My next open studio will be along soon, November 24, 25, and 26, and one final day, December 2nd.
