8/22/18

I know it has been a few weeks since I last wrote anything but honestly, there isn't much to tell. I still do not have my studio yet. I can't paint or work outside as it is much too hot. So I am biding my time.

Also, tomorrow I leave to go back to Boston to visit my mom who is ailing. I am planning to stay until Monday but I cannot be certain of anything right now.

I hate the idea of spending 2 days in airports and planes. I was hoping I would be done with all that back and forth traveling but who was I kidding?  There is a price to pay when you move 2600 miles away from family.  I really hate to leave here even for a long weekend. I am just so at home here and going back to Boston I will have to stay in a hotel and spend $$$ on Uber getting around.

But I am trying to make the best of it. Hopefully when I get back here my studio will be all ready for me and I can paint again. It has literally been months now since I have painted. A very long time. Too long. I have been making mandalas and things like that but I am antsy for paint and knives and brushes. As well as mixing my own colors again. Something you cannot do with pens and markers.

When I return I hope to get back to my studio practice.

Love these patterns! I can see this as an embroidery piece on a quilt! Really cool!!! Good luck with your mom. Hope you won't need to stay long and mom will be ok.

Hope your mom feels better! Love your new mandalas and what you've done on your porch. xoxo

We wanted to move across the country back when we were first married, but we didn't. I wish we had. I hate that you have to go back so soon after moving and I hope your mother gets better. Best wishes for a safe trip.
