Life has been a whirlwind these last several weeks as my daughter decided to accept a transfer of her job from San Jose, California to Amsterdam, the Netherlands! It all happened very quickly - passport, visa, plane tickets were obtained and she moved all her worldly goods to storage here in Reno. Lucky for us, she came to stay with us for a week before flying off to her new adventure. We helped her sell her car, load all her household goods into storage and pack for two years in Amsterdam. She ended up with 5 gigantic duffel bags of clothing and shoes. Monster, her 7 pound miniature Yorkie will stay at her brother's house until Kimberly is settled - then she intends to fly her to Amsterdam. She has been over there for a week now, is still in a hotel in the downtown area but today she rented an apartment with a view over a canal - it is just lovely! I am so excited for her.

I admit to not having as much time at my easel as I normally do but, hopefully, as life settles back down, I will get back on track with painting.
Here are a few of the things I worked on over the last few weeks:
|Walt Whitman / oil on masonite / 16x20|
|Ballerina #34 / oil on canvas / 30x15|
|Jockey / oil on cardboard / 14x18|
|Dance Recital / oil on linen / 18x24|
|Evil Wears a Green Cap / oil on canvas / 12x12|
