    COLOR ; that is what led me to this blog two years ago. …and fine art, again. Love that you are painting like this again. I missed this side of you while you experimented with the other. You have a very special vision and your paintings are uplifting!

      Thanks, Ryan! Funny…. I never think of back to school until the parents stop spending money on signs, so they can buy school clothes and supplies. he he I never had kids, so the whole back to school thing nearly passes me by.
