Last September, I finally admitted that my favourite medium, oil paint, was giving me migraines.  I decided to take a sabbatical and try to find an alternative.


Over the winter, I tried something completely different - rug hooking - and had a wonderful time making hats.   Lately, however,  the old urge to get outdoors has become just too strong.   So I am once again painting en plein air,  but this time I'm sticking to oil pastels.  We'll see what happens.


In the meantime, I will still let the website lie fallow. When I have something to show, I will renew the site. Thank you for your patience.
