And...was sick !!! However, I did find the strength to be inspired so more sea blues and golden sands will be coming down the pike. Several were in process when I left so I was able to finish up four paintings in the past week and ship three off to the Haystack Gallery in Cannon Beach, Oregon. the best news is that John is out in the garage building me two new wooden boxes so I can create even more of my grotto series....like Intrigue.
