“Lap Land” on the easel, in-progress and oh so big! She began in fits and starts with a sprinkle of panic, but she seems to be taking shape. The photo bomb in the background is my daughter, who never ceases to surprise, challenge and keep me busy! Her twin brother is a whole other story I’ll save for another day. Believe it or not it is only 4pm in this photo and totally dark, ah winter. . . .the time of year when I don’t feel one bit guilty about cozying up in the studio.
