10” X 16”
I love this bear. I’ve painted him numerous times and never get tired of this image.
I’ve been without my computers for a week while they were being updated.
It turned out well in the end but my tech guy had some issues he’s never seen before.
 I told him now you know what it’s like to be a mere mortal in this crazy tech world. 

I’m back in business as far as I can tell. I have to learn some new computer stuff so it could 
be touch and go for a while. My screen looks so different as well as my keyboard 

Let’s hope for continued success.

As you know I’ve been struggling with painting. So instead of fighting it I decided
to paint some images I’ve painted previously. I’m still struggling but I’m starting to feel better.
I’ve been cleaning my studio as well to bring some life back into my space, purge old baggage
and hopefully open up my creative pathways. 

Thanks for waiting - it’s been humbling to say the least MB

This is going to be an explanation of what's been going on. 
Last year blogspot quit working on my iPad  - so I signed
up for a new website which only a handful of followers signed up to
receive(my new website is expensive so I want to get rid of it)
That story coming at a later date.

Yesterday - it appears that I've found a way around the blogspot
snafu on my iPad and you are now receiving blogspot in your email
just like the old days! 

I've also created a newsletter link on my old website at the top of the page
On the newsletter link it asks for your bday my rule of thumb is to put
April 1(April fools day - it's easy to remember and not your real bday)
So if you want to sign up that's what I recommend.

Also, at the top of my webpage there's a new Instagram button
I have no idea what Instagram is but I'm trying to learn.
I think you can hit the Instagram button
and the follow button and when I post something new
you'll get notification.

I'm in a bit of a tizzy - it will all be explained in more
detail as I go. Thanks for persevering through all of this upheaval.
OH! BY THE BY there was a pine Martin in my house this morning
He ate all my pears - pooped and peed in 3 places
it could've been much worse. He's out of the house now and we're
repairing the hole he scratched his way into the house - yikes!
He was soooo cute too.
