I know I have been quiet in my corner but plodding along.
So many exciting things coming up! 

And one is that the above pastel Yellow + Roses is one of two
paintings that will be on exhibit at The Salmagundi Art Club 
in New York City. I am honored to be a juried member of the 
Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club and this exhibit is their
Annual Members Show.

Now if only I could package myself within the box
and go to New York too.

Now how exciting would that be?
