Wow, it's been a long time! I am happily settled in my new residence in Beaufort SC. It was a tremendous amount of work to get here and I don't plan on moving again for a very long time. I promptly got the flu on New Year's day or I would have been back posting again sooner. I am still feeling a bit crummy and there are two bedrooms that are either filled with storage containers or excess furniture, but I am getting there and hope to be back to painting full time very soon.
