Happy New Year, Everyone!
I spent today getting back into the swing of business, shows, and life in general but it wasn't easy. I can hardly believe we are into a new year ... where does the time go.
Moving to Chicago is not just a far away idea anymore, it will become my reality in a few months once I sign an apartment lease. Last Friday I looked at a few apartments when I was in town and I discovered a very cool building; the lobby hosts small monthly art shows and even though the apartments did not work for me, I may be able to get into a small neighborhood show there around September.

My next trip to Chicago won't be until March when I can actually sign a lease. In the meantime, I have several upcoming shows and workshops to teach. Details are listed on the right in "Current and Upcoming Events".
The Copley Society, Small Works show -
Swampscott Art Association, Retrospective show -
The Swampscott Art Association is also having another winter show in Salem, I have until Friday to figure out if and what I will submit.
Next workshop I am teaching is January 12, Intro to Encaustic at Brush Strokes Studios. In March I teach my last watercolor workshop at Montserrat College of Art, and after that moving will be my job 24/7.
