Spending time with my boys has been amazing.

My friend, Lynette, and I took ourselves off to Boone, NC in July to take a fantastic workshop in watercolor and collage with the fabulous Jerry Brommer.
I had two pieces in a show at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA, one of which sold and the other of which was used in all of the publicity for the show.

My artist-in-residence show opened in September in the main gallery at LibertyTown, and my parents came from Texas to the opening which capped the evening perfectly.

And a crazy 19" snowfall the week before Christmas!
In addition to the above, we spent a week in North Georgia with my sis and my folks and my aunt and uncle. I stood back and cheered as my husband went for a week-long Blues workshop in West Virginia. He has since begun a cool hobby of making cigar box musical instruments with as much work by hand as possible. Go Tres!
I look forward to 2010, anticipating the joys and challenges that await. Thanks to all of you great folks in the art blogging world. You have also added immeasurably to my life this year. Happy New Year to you all.
