Greetings!

I'm always looking for a better way to organize my website. Recently I decided to place all the small works (about 11" X 14" or smaller) in their own gallery called "Small Wonders." I've included both paintings and fused glass in this gallery. The paintings include watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media. They range from realism and abstractions-of-reality to non-objective art. I hope you enjoy the variety of work.

In case you are wondering about the snowy image in the header, we've had snow in and out of the forecast recently and it happened on Thursday. I was at a conference for the National Guild for Community Arts Educators held in Baltimore. The day started with snow and sleet. I met a participate from Portland Maine and she commented that she had never imagined her first day of snow would be in Baltimore, Maryland. I have to admit seeing the snowfall was quite beautiful but I was grateful it turned to rain before I had to drive home. This morning it was melted from the pavement at our home (which always seems to get a bit more accumulation of snow) so no major impact on our lives.

It did convince me I'm definitely not ready for the snow to "stick" yet. One thing the snow did was make me realize how close we are getting to the end of the year. 2018 has been flying by faster than I can believe. The United States celebration of Thanksgiving is next week and my Canadian friends celebrated last month. Truly a sign the holidays are right around the corner.

I give thanks to all my friends, family, collectors and students who follow me and my art. You bring me great joy.
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving,
April
