September is here, HOORAY

I'm back. September is my favorite month of the year. The weather is ideal, beautiful clear crisp days, time to plant more perrenials and harvest the garden. Best of all, it's the month my critique group has it's annual retreat. This is an event I look forward to every year.

There is a lot happening for me this fall. I'll be taking two painting courses at the Gage Academy, and teaching five classes at the Arts Umbrella. Very Exciting! The idea of learning new painting techniques gives me chills.

My son and daughter went back to school this week. I am so proud of them, they're growing into such interesting individuals.
