From the West Coast

Colorado Street Bridge (detail)

I'm getting settled here on the west coast.  I stepped off the train with a horrible flu/cold, got laryngitis but my voice came back just in time for the holidays.  Aside from the 3 weeks recuperating, I'm loving California.  Beautiful weather and scenery.  

I start teaching a drawing class next week, so I'm busy getting ready for it.  I've spent so much of my last several years painting that I'm looking forward to drawing again.  Nothing like having charcoal all over my hands and occasional face smudge.  

I will share more about my new life at a later time.  In the meantime, I'm just living in the present, soaking it all up and trying to get into some sort of routine.  Until I get back on schedule for painting, I'm sharing a bit of a piece I'm currently working on.  

Hope everyone has a fabulous 2014.  I'm counting on mine to be awesome.
