Life is getting hectic again. My art classes are in full swing and I have a couple of new painting commissions to work on. Meanwhile, I'm also working to build a group of paintings to replace what sold in the last show. It's exciting to be thinking about new compositions. As I wander around antique and junk shops I scan the shelves for interesting objects. The things I end up choosing usually spark some kind of memory, most often of someone I care about.
