The Portfolio express has been temporarily derailed by my wife’s illness.  She recently spent 5 days in the hospital recovering from a severe case of Salmonella poisoning.  (No, we don’t know where it came from.)  Fortunately she is now home and well on her way to full recovery.

But before I can get back into my routine I have prepare for next weeks opening reception for my daughter’s exhibit of her felted critters, paintings, and drawings.  This means it is time for my annual  “ clean up the studio, throw out stuff, and make space where none exists”.  Before I can set up Sara’s work I have to move some of mine out of the gallery.  Before I can do that I have to move stuff out of the studio so there is room for the work from the gallery.  And before I can dot that….you get the picture.  I can’t tell you how sorely tempted I am to give everything away, and start all over.

If my life wasn’t so good, I would complain!

The last thing I completed before this unexpected break:

The Colonial...markers and pastel

I hope your wife feels better... it's awful to be sick, but especially when the weather is changing and she wants to be outside enjoying the new blooms. Best wishes to your daughter on her exhibition!
