It’s Been a Busy Summer

It’s been a busy summer.

There’s been traveling, art shows, and curating and installing other artist’s exhibits.

I’ll be back soon. Summer vacation is about to end. I hope you’re enjoying the close of summer. Maybe when it’s over, we can all get some rest. 🙂

Savor the magic of summer,
