Summer is over. My daughters are back in school and my own teaching schedule is relatively set. I have the immense pleasure of proclaiming (albeit to myself in the quiet confines of this room) thursdays and fridays as my new studio work days. I will wear slippers, drink cold coffee, and listen to podcasts while I make ART! This is my second week back at it, and it really feels as if an old dear friend has returned to my life.
