Welcome to my new blog, La Vida Artistica=The Artistic Life. I have chosen to have my blog title bi-lingual because I love everything about Latino and Hispanic culture and people. And, it is my firm New Year's resolution to become fluent in Spanish by the end of the year. This blog will cover everything from my art-in-progress to my art workshops to my longings to be back in Mexico and southern climes. I have probably been to Mexico about as many times as I have fingers and toes...and whenever I leave, a part of my heart stays. My art seems to be leaning more and more toward this perpetual yearning...I hope you enjoy what you see and read on these pages.
