This year I decided I needed a break from living in the US and I'm temporarily living in a little town called Gore Bay which is on an island on Lake Huron. I've only been here a few weeks. Winter is a serious thing here, and doesn't feel much different than a summer at the South Pole really. The deer and I are anxiously awaiting the green of spring but it has given me some much needed down time to focus on my art.

My latest art project 10000sketches began in earnest in August (2015) has been a little slower going than I anticipated. I didn't hire a virtual assistant for the 5 months I was in Antarctica this year so I stopped posting altogether. But now I'm back at it and it feels good. Time to move this project along....

My big focus right now is on create digital works of art combining my paintings and my photographs. This is an exciting turn in my work for me and consequently I'm not getting much sleep because of it. I could not be more excited about the future of my work now! 

In May I'm going to Ireland. I hope it rains, I hope we see lots of castles and drink lots of cider. I can't think of a better way to celebrate spring!
