to fall upon my face. 

Relief!

SOLD - PRIVATE COLLECTOR


With the hustle-bustle of life, time slips away so quickly. 

The last few years with a hectic schedule of creating art
and making a living, that time has evaporated in a puff!

Where did it go?

After vacationing a couple of times at the island, I had created "Catalina"
when time was more abundant. Still one of my favorite landscapes!


So relaxing and enjoyable . . .  
I really need to stop for a minute here.
