The school year officially ended a week ago, and I have been keeping quite busy since then. Last Thursday and Friday I participated in a two-day painting workshop at Hampton Historic Site with fellow BCPS art teachers. It was nice to dedicate time towards painting, especially since I hadn’t used (water-based) oil paints in many… Continue reading Summertime Kickoff

The first item on my agenda was to have my last name officially changed. Our marriage certificate came in the mail last week, and I planned… Continue reading When Inspiration Presents Itself
