Time Out


Greetings my sweeties – 

After 4-plus years of weekly blogging it is time for a sabbatical.  I’ll still be painting, but the urge to post weekly has been waning and it’s time to give it some space.  Other folks I admire have taken time away from their blogs without causing the earth to spin out of its orbit, so I feel safe in taking time away as well.

Taking some time away...

After perusing over 250 posts I’m really pleased to see that I’ve written some pretty good stuff.  For the next few weeks (months?) I’ll dole out my favorites a few at a time so do stop back for fresh reading now and then.

It’s interesting to note that my “Best Of’s” are not necessarily about art at all. Hm. (Sheila, that one’s for you.) 





By the way, I'll still be sending out a newsletter every 6 weeks or so (okay, maybe every 2 months). If you'd like to stay in touch, sign up here. Remember to add me to your contact list so they don't get stuck in your spam folder.

Until next time ...

I will miss your post, but I understand the need to attend to what moves you most. And painting takes priority....keep in touch! I will sign up for your newsletter.

I thought you would understand Cathyann.

Your post about your plein air experience is hilarious! Hope the wonderful little painting made it out okay. And how lovely that you took time to notice the blossom opening right before your eyes.

Hmmm not about art? I just want to say congratulations for over 4 years of posts! That in itself is a wonderful accomplishment. We will all enjoy the extra time that you will have to paint more beautiful paintings. Good luck on your journey!

Thank you so much Sheila. Perhaps I'll send a postcard... ; D
