September 2016
Summer is over and fall is moving in early here in central Alberta.

I wish that I could say that my summer was a productive one, but it wasn’t.  Rain, rain and more rain and I should have, could have, would have, but didn’t get more work done.

The rain, it seems fogged my brain and got me flying in way too many directions all at once.  So instead of painting I started a new novel.  I’ve also been researching self-publishing too so that I can finally put my first novel Secrets, Lies and Rodeo out there! More on that coming soon.

September will be a busy month for me as I work to catch up on my painting and do my best to keep up with the writing and publishing too.

Lots of weekend activities are coming up as well, including the Edmonton Entertainment and Comic Expo, September 23rd to 25th. I’ve decided that I’m not too ‘mature’ for cosplay, so look for me there.

On the following weekend I’ll be showing some of my paintings at the RImbey Art Club’s 50th Anniversary Exhibition being held at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre during Alberta Culture Days.
