So its been a while...this summer has been so busy...london, paris, new hampshire, cape cod...I have traveled more in my seventieth year..( or is this my seventy first?)...than ever before..and I've absolutely loved every minute of it!...and then..throw in trips to the lake and golf outings...so very much fun!!.. ..so i am thrilled to be represented by White Key Gallery in valparaiso...our cottage is here..I've been coming here virtually all of my life..and it just seems right to have a gallery connection here. I will deliver six pieces this week..one of them my favorite poppy painting...more to follow..

So we came up to the lake for the fourth..seems like we're never home!..I'm working on finishing a few paintings and almost finished with a wedding gift that's long overdue...we've installed two new ac units, gotten the place sort of ready for the family reunion tomorrow..already hearing fireworks so we need to get the girls suited up in their thunder shirts... I spoke with a gallery today...the white key gallery on lincolnway. Here in valpo...lovely place and a very nice owner who is also a painter...im thinking we may be a fit but stay tuned...
