Thank you to friends and collectors who purchased paintings last year. 2020 was a banner year in that regard, and the extra funds allowed me to complete phase one of my studio renovation, in the little old cape house across the street from where my husband Ryan and I live. We bought the cape several years ago, gutted it completely, down to the hand-hewn beams, and it now has a new roof. Phase two will follow later this year, if all goes well. I appreciate the support and interest more than you will ever know.
I will write again with more news before summer, since I also spent much of the winter finishing the book I've been working on, about painting on Bear Island, in Penobscot Bay. The book itself is done, and now I'm doing some final housekeeping chores related to it. I hope to self-publish copies in July. Please stay tuned for more news about that, keep an eye out for crocuses - any day now! - and take care, in the months ahead.
