The above pieces are the result of being able to go long days in the studio, as a result of Covid. Then I took a virtual workshop with Anne Havel, a wonderful artist, so I was able to make the pieces with graphite and enamels. I'm still working and learning, getting ready for our Foothills Artists Tour in November 20 and 21... www.foothillsartists.net for details.
