   Yes, it finally arrived! I love, love, love beautiful, romantic movies allow me to imagine that I could be transported to their time. Berthe Morisot and Manet by Caroline Champetier is such a movie. It's been on my list of "wants" that I keep for my husband for a long while, but he seemed to have a hard time finding it as it was a made-for-TV French movie. 


          Well, not too long ago, I was surprised with it and I've watched it several times since. It is in French with no subtitles, so I can make guesses as to what they are saying. It's helped that I've read a great deal on both artists and that the movie is gorgeous, so I can't take my eyes off of it to get clues. The painting above is inspired by this beautiful movie, which I am still pinching myself to make sure that I do really get to watch it.

     REMINDER: If you are registered to receive e-mail updates regarding my latest work and have not registered in the last week, I hope you will please do so. Several of you have let me know that you have not gotten e-mail updates in months. As I tried to fix the problem, I found that it can't be fixed. So, I am switching service to MailChimp. I hope you will give me a few days after you've registered to make sure you are off the old mailing list. Once again, I thank you SOOOOOOOOO very much for your interest in my artwork and your constant inspiration. Have a lovely day.

I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
