I have just completed a one month Artist in Residence at the Coast Victoria Hotel.  It was a typical January, slow but with rewards.  I sold a number of paintings and a bunch of cards, but more importantly I met many new people and also some very delightful clients. 
I'll be back for another AIR in November.  Meanwhile I'm back in my studio getting ready to paint another local image.  I've gotten some of the studio back in order, and already I'm anxious to put paint to panel.
I've attached the framed photo of The Empress & Her Navy.  Many encouraging comments on the new offering.
