I have not posted since last May. I have been remodeling parts of the house and landscaping, and all my art supplies were packed away. I am breaking the pens and paints out again and will start sharing posts again. I will not make my third 365 within the calendar year as I did the first two years, but I am going to get to work again. These are some thank you notes to a few relatives whom we saw on a short trip to California, USA, last month.
