kitchen paintings.
When I paint the kitchen
it's the excitement, and
exuberance of our lives
in the room I'm trying to
capture. We always have
 flowers, bowls of fruit
and someone settling down
 to a cup of coffee or tea.

I think it's a good day for 10 reasons to be happy -- okay let's go!

10 Reasons to be Happy
1. I taught my last class of a 7 week course, and it was so much fun!

2. Our garden has really liked the rain, and is super beautiful.

3. We are whole and healthy -- and that is great.

4.  I got to talk to my dear friend the artist, Franco Mbilizi in 
    Chicago today, and we joked about the word literally -- literally
    a lot.

5.  I am going to see my friend the artist, Miranda Brouwers next

6. I worked on a drawing this morning.

7. We ate a delicious dinner tonight.

8. It was a gorgeous sunny day.

9. It is almost the weekend.

10. I am a lucky person, and happy artist because I know you,

Have a loving your life day.
