Summer is a time away from the computer, and fall, somehow, is back to the busy season no matter one's age or profession. And the blogs sit in silence.
And so a quick recap of the past month, brought to you by the letter "I" for instagram, which I caved for and downloaded.
As an artist I feel I should hate a product that makes "photography" so simple; but it got me... those filters are gorgeous!

Traveling, exploring, cooking, painting... September was fabulous. Not a drop of rain all month here in our rainy city. My work schedule has gotten busier now that it is fall; I teach morning preschool and afternoon after-school art classes at different venues most everyday of the week. In my spare time, I paint, paint, paint! I have been selling work like I wouldn't have believed a year ago, shipping work off to shows across the country, and am currently prepping for a solo show in a huge gallery space this November. Here comes October... better hang on tight.
