Looking past and moving forward
The start of the week is full of possibilities. I am a big to-do list writer, and it feels good to have a long list that dwindles down as the days pass. My Grandma was also a list maker, and kept small notebooks full of times and numbers, tracking her daily activities, medicine, and other notes she needed to remember. Below is a piece from 2008, inspired by her writing.

First on my to-do list is a work of art for Steven's office. I have been sketching grackles and fishing lures for awhile, and now it is time to put the pieces together. The background will be simple, similar to this drawing I made for Dad. The bird will be dark and heavy at the top of the page, with brightly colored lures dangling down...I'm excited to work in a new direction and create something special for my husband!
