Feel like life has been moving at warp speed and I have left my blog way way back there somewhere. I'll explain some personal news near the end of this post. First want to share some art related news.
I hinted at this a few weeks ago before I was ready to reveal more. But today, with page numbers and contract in my email, I think it's safe to announce that six of my art pieces will be featured in a new book by best selling author Martin Dawber along with the work of many other international artists. I am excited and honored beyond words. According to Amazon, "Martin Dawber is the Principal Lecturer in Fashion at the Liverpool John Moores University where he has taught for the last 25 years. He is also a practising designer and has had his work exhibited in France and Finland. He has a Masters Degree from the Royal College of Art, specializing in Fashion Design. Martin Dawber lives in Liverpool." I'll reveal more as it all comes to fruition, but wanted you all to be some of the first to know! And I want to thank the many image designers who gave me permission to use their images in my work and will be proud to include them in the captions for each work included in the book.

I have lots of other art stuff to update and share but just need a day with enough hours in it to get it done - hope that happens this week, so come back by if you can toward the end of the week.
Have had a lot to deal with with my daughter. It's a long story but our troubles included a brief but nerve flinching lymphoma scare and now we are left with just a bit of a mystery as to why she has been so sick for so many months. Part of it can be explained with a recent mono diagnosis coupled with a severe strep infection that seems to be stubbornly rooted in her liver. But it doesn't explain abnormal liver tests back in December or repeated illnesses back to October. We're still waiting on blood tests and answers but we feel we are finally on the road to recovery and so thankful "the big C" has been taken off the table. As we approach the end of her senior year, and all of the activities and deadlines that come with it, I feel my schedule and work habits may continue to be a bit hit and miss. But someday, I swear, someday I am going to feel like life slows down just long enough to feel caught up for at least one blog post!
