One gorgeous day at a time! Happy March!

March means spring is coming.  Spring means everything growing
at a fantastic rate. I am resolved to take it one day at a time, for
the duration while this big, blue cast sits on my arm.  Maybe not
the same one -- but I've been told I'll have a cast for 2 months!
Did I paint today? Yes.  Can I show you?  No.  Things progress so slowly.
They always do, but now every movement has to be considered.  So I've
done that, and I am happy at the end of this day.

I've loved blogging every day in February, and I'll keep going for as
long as I can. Tonight I'llshow you some recent drawings.  I have a very
big painting dominating my creative mind -- but drawing is always
there -- happy to step up and make some art.

Sending love out to my early drawing teachers for teaching me to
have such pleasure.  Happy March!

Have a feeling-spring-in-the-air day!
Sorry Toronto -- I hear it's snowing, but spring is coming!

Take care of that blue arm. I so enjoy your line drawings and feel excited in anticipation of your big painting!

Hi Nicki,

Thank you so much. I love everything you do. It is more or less done -- the photo had to go in
to the exhibition -- but I think you understand. One or two things might pull at me before
May when it has to physically go into the show.
