It’s raining, it’s pouring and the result is I haven’t been witnessing many sunrises at Minot Beach recently. Rather than walking in the often heavy rain and high winds I have opted to exercise inside. It also gives me time to focus on creating art.

It feels like a miracle. This past week between my photographer (husband) and myself, we managed to capture nearly every phase of my progress on my current WIP (Work in Progress) “Hydrangea”.
