Right now, my home and studio feels like "base". A safe place in a uncertain time.
This summer, my wonderful husband of three years, Michael Gotz, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer affecting the bone marrow and blood. Suddenly, our wonderful, blissful life of making art and music has changed. Stress and uncertainties loom. Battles with the insurance provider are ramping up over what services they will and will not provide.
Michael is great. He keeps writing music and going to gigs. He is constantly cracking me up with his jokes, and caring for his wild birds out the window. He will play his guitar until he drops.

Painting has always been the way I find joy, work through problems, work off excess energy, cope with stress, express my emotions... deal with uncertainty. I think I'll get off the computer and go paint.
