My Grandson, Nicholas, started pre-school last week. What a big change in the little guy's life. Instead of being a cancer patient he gets to be a normal little boy. His doctor says school will be good for him. He has enough immune system to handle the inevitable colds and flus. He still goes to the hospital twice a month, to be checked that his leukemia is still in remission. But, the rest of the time he gets to play with other children and learn. He loves school!
It's been 3 months and no one has taken me up on my Painted Artist challenge. So.... time for something new. I have been busy in my studio. Lots of new paintings finished, and sold. Some new ideas starting to take shape. I will be posting some of these soon.
And my jewelry is doing well. I listed some of my jewelry pieces in my eBay store, never thinking they would actually sell. What a surprise! My little polymer clay horses are popular. I enjoy silversmith and beading, as a way of taking a break from painting. And polymer clay is too much fun to work with. It makes you see the world in a whole new light. When I see something cool, I think "I could make that in polymer clay!"
