This Blog Is Officially Closed

As most of you know, this blog is officially closed.  But, I will provide a brief update below, for my bloggy buddies who continue to stop by from time to time.  Thanks for remembering me.  I miss you all and remember you fondly as well.  Use the following link if you would like to read my last official blog post.  Or, if you'd like to read the post that explains why I decided to close down this blog, use this link.

UPDATE:  Thanks for all the concern and well wishes for me, my family and our son.  We still have him on random UA's to test for drugs and he has come up clean now for months.  Thank God!  We started him on an anti-anxiety and antidepressant medication as he seemed to be using the pot and synthetic pot as a way of self medicating.  His work with his therapist is also going well.

My work in botanical illustration also continues to go well and I am enjoying it.  The Monarch butterfly and milkweed image above is a piece I produced in a class I took this past fall.  I also have started work on my first paid commission.  Yay!  Maybe, someday in the not-too-distant future, I will put up a link to a new website featuring my artwork.  Thank you all for your interest in that as well.  I hope you all are thriving as well as surviving.  Blessing to you all.
