What? Were you born yesterday?

Maddy day 2......

As a matter of fact...

Here is a wild one...My grand nephew, Brian, and wife Dana had their baby on the same day, in Santa Maria! There was a little problem and baby Gregory was delivered by C section. Then for safety he was brought to the neonatal at Cottage in Santa Barbara. So Maddy and Gregory are both here! Gregory is doing well, last report.

Leap Day at the ART CLINIC

We just had our first anniversary party for the ART CLINIC. It was a really fun night. Thank you so much everyone who came and all our supporters. Carol and I appreciate you so much.

It has been a big week. Sunday Earl helped me get my show at New Frontiers up. I was very happy with the way it all looked.

I had a challenge due, busy getting the studio cleaned up and helping Carol with some details for the student show for the local students put on by the Artist's Guild of Santa Ynez Valley. I am looking forward to a less hectic week.
