As the light changes and the days become shorter, I find myself drawn back to my studio. Early mornings with my journal nestled with my coffee cup in the corner of my studio feels good. As the season changes I'm full of eager anticipation for what will inspire me next. Dreams of a trip to Paris are reinforced by a recent purchase of a small shadowbox next to my desk painted by Connie Dillon: "Yvette chose a sophisticated, traditional apartment but soon joyfully realized that she was anything but sophisticated and traditional." Yes! that's me!
