I've also been working on more books and paintings while here in Dominica. I have made a habit of doing an annual self portrait and a grandchild portrait while I'm away for the winter.
I have an exhibit coming up at the
LE Phillips Library in EAu Claire, WI
April 17th to May 27 with the reception on April 20th at 7-8pm.
I'll be featuring my work completed during our annual global forays.
