Wow!  What a year it has been … but it is almost over now, and I have to say that I am looking forward to 2017 and focusing on my art, making some new pieces, trying some new techniques.

For those of you who have been asking for classes in my studio, I am happy to say that they are coming!  So stay tuned.  I am planning a series of classes to get you working on your own pieces, designing a bit, learning to think and see in a different manner, and having fun all around, while learning some new techniques, ways to work, etc.  I hope you’ll find them interesting and will want to join me.  More details to come in the new year.  Fine tuning how many sessions, prices, supply lists, etc.  I, for one, am very excited about this!

Now tomorrow is Christmas Eve.  I’m planning a good rowing session in the morning to get started – hopefully the snow will have stopped by then.  I am hoping to find some time after that to do try a new technique I’ve been wanting to try for a while, and have not had the time.  So I promised myself a bit of time downstairs to do some messy work before I have to change and join friends for dinner.

I would like to thank all my friends, students, followers, people I’ve met through teaching and events I attended, for your support, encouragement, comments, likes, etc.  You make my days special and hope you know how much I appreciate it all!

So here’s to a safe and bright Christmas with friends and family, remembering those who are not with us, those who are far away, and those who are working very hard in faraway places to keep us safe.

Merry Christmas!
