Happy Birthday Ares or my Bean is twelve years old


My son is 12 years old today.  He makes me as proud as I have ever been of anything.  He surprises me with his wit, his sensitivity, his calm and his insight.  He teaches me how to be more mindful, how to listen better, how to let go of chips on my shoulder and how to have fun.  He is growing up into his own person, we can see it now more clearly each season and it’s happening faster and faster, soon he’ll be all grown – but we are treasuring each and every moment we get to spend with him now.   Happy Birthday Ares.  We love you so.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
