Wow! It's been a long time since I posted. I hope to remedy that this year. It's January, 2012 and I have much art news. For the past 1 1/2 years I've been writing a novel--a murder mystery and it's nearing publication on Amazon in paperback and for Kindle. I'm working on the illustrations for the cover and inside, still doing the last minute polishing of the text and will be programming in HTML, which I still have to teach myself.

In the meantime I sold a few tiles at the small annual Christmas sale hosted by Kele Alpaca Farm in Kewaunee County, Wisconsin.

The big news is that I will be adding more photographs to my site. This past year I have taken a workshop online to help me learn to work in Adobe Lightroom. I hope to be accepted to stock photography sites this year and to do upgrade my photo skills too. A new camera is on my list, a dSLR. Can't wait!

My other year-long project is to finish all those unfinished paintings and drawings in my studio. Seriously, the stack in at least a foot high!

I've been enjoying the video uploads from other artists. You are all inspiring me to continue. Thanks for your work. And play.
