Anonymous said: Have you abandoned this site? Or are you just very busy with teaching art classes? Are you well? Is there another place where I can keep up with your work and life?

I am quite well, actually. It has been forever since I have posted. Mutiple computer crashes, broken (literally) computers, moving to another state, engagement, wedding planning, and having a baby have all lead to quite a bit of time between now and my last post. I do not currently have a computer than can store all the photos I would like, so posting again is a ways off. However, I do intend to come back. I am just on a life hiatus until such time as I have access to appropriate technology :-)

I miss you all greatly, and can’t thank you enough for your loyalty in my absence.
