Almost Gone

Almost Gone, 2007, Oil on Panel, 8x10

Well, obviously my studio time got a bit off track over the last few days. However, I did manage to get nearly all of the work done that I had planned. I also have a really nice piece going that I had hoped to send along to The Harrison Gallery, but alas, it is not quite resolved and so it will have to wait until I can get back to it. Since there will be no funeral for my mother, just a private memorial in September, we have decided to go on our family vacation as planned. Doug and I really need to spend a nice quiet week without computer, phone or television, on a lake, enjoying the company of our children.

I will be back in early September, and hopefully ya'll won't forget about me and my little blog here!

Might I recommend taking two weeks? Blogging is so easy to quit. Nothing is going to happen out here. Nothing is more important then the opposite of blogging.

Steven, I am afraid if I take two weeks off, then I will never come back and I am not quite ready to do THAT yet. Plus, I would lose my spot in the blogger show!

But you are right. Our vacation was lovely, partly because I wasn't looking at the dang computer everyday....

Thanks Tim, I am back now, and it was a really nice vacation. I will post about it in a few days.

Welcome back, Tracy!

I'm glad you had a restful vacation - and I'm glad you're back too :) Looking forward to your next posts and to seeing your latest work.
