Just starting watching the Netflix series "Abstract. The Art of Design".

Early morning portrait practice of the check out girl at the grocery store.

Day 33 // Making Art Everyday in 2017

I am so happy to be home and back in my studio. We really needed a family vacation and some time away with the kids, time to reflect and enjoy the much needed sunshine. A cut up cantaloupe on a dish cloth that reminds me that summer is just right around the corner.
