i had to share this artwork with you that was just sent to me from my dear, dear judy, who lives all the way down in beautiful sydney, beautiful australia. judy was my hostess there for four glorious days - if i can ever get around to posting about my adventures in oz, you'll understand how generous she was with her time and attention. since then, we've become even closer with email communication, and i look forward to next year when she'll be taking my workshops in australia again. judy's work astounds me. i don't know what else to say about it, except that it is glorious, highly detailed, with much much meaning and significance. in fact, i'll insist that you go have a look over at red velvet to read her latest story and see some of her artwork - absolutely amazing.
alright, then. i'm off, to the heart of dixie, where it hasn't rained in well over two months, and temperatures reach nearly 100 degrees these days, and my parents do not use air conditioning because they like the windows open to the sounds of the birds and the fresh air. there are worse things, to be sure.
