Birthday Sunset

Here is my finished painting: I chose the title Birthday Sunset because this was the sunset on the evening that I was hosting Cate’s first birthday party this past November.

Books I Read in 2012, part 1

Even with all that went on this year, I spent a fair amount of time reading. I’m publishing a two part blog post with short reviews summarizing what I read this past year. I grabbed most of these books from the New Fiction rack at the library, although next year I’m planning on being a […]
