SANTA BABY!



 ALL THE VERY BEST 
 FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON 




GETTING BACK TO WORK IN
MY STUDIO AFTER OVER A YEAR'S
ABSENCE WAS THE BEST PRESENT
 THAT I COULD POSSIBLY 
IMAGINE. 

I'M NOT MAKING ANY POTS, 
BUT USING GRAPHIC SKILLS, 
PAINTING AND PRINTMAKING 
IMAGERY AND HAVING 
A WHOLE LOT OF FUN
GETTING BACK TO NORMAL.

ALL THE VERY BEST OF THE SEASON
TO ALL MY READERS, 
WHEREVER YOU MAY BE.

BRUSHSTUFF #3 IS STILL COMING SOON.

  4. Merry Christmas to you and yours as well. I'm so glad that you were able to get some medical help and are now feeling so much better... persistence pays off. It really p!$$es me off when MD'S tell us that that we "have" to accept the problems that go along with aging instead of spending some time and finding the root of the problem.
