I'm back at the studio and it FEELS GREAT! I can paint again. I worked on these two items this week and so look forward to making more.

I pulled out a large canvas and sketched a few things. A little nervous about putting brush to canvas but will just go with it. There will be no mistakes in creating - I have to tell myself.

Visited with many friends at the studio. Went to an art opening of my studio mate, Paul Morin's work. His worked looked FABULOUS!

Its been a tiring week but I have to build up my stamina again.

Have a bone marrow biopsy scheduled for this coming Monday - not my favorite test - but have to endure. Reminders of my Leukemia are never more than a few steps away but nevertheless my life feels very fulfilling!


  1. these trays are beautiful! colores de mi gente!

    what did you use as your base? a wooden tray? these are really great!

  2. Right - a wooden tray. The surface is easy to adhere fabric and paper to. I'm sure you've discovered this with all the great work you've done!
