Return to My Blog

Hello again!!!


 So sorry for the distance between my blog entries!  Since the late fall when I sent the last blog message

 I have been very busy with life and in my studio creating art.  There will be more images soon, I promise!!!!

 But I have also been traveling a bit.  In May, my husband amd I went on a Viking River Cruise from Paris, France.  It began there and cuised up river towards Normandy.  We were able to take in the beauty of Monet's gardens and home in Giverny, the incredible cathedral of Rouen and the history of the life of Jeanne D'Arc, the awe of the beaches at Normandy where so many lost they're lives, the chateaus at Chenonceau, Chambord, and Amboise(where da Vinci spent the last 2 years of his life and is buried) and through some small villages that make that region of France so incredible.

 I feel sure that many of the photos that we took are ripe for paintings to come.

  More later . . . happy Summer!
