The winter months in New England have been brutal and weighing on me physically and mentally. I’ve barely spent more than a few hours a week in the studio. I’ve tried to work from home, but that’s almost never fully successful. I’m determined to finish, “Fireball Jackson”, by the end of the month.
It’s been a rush to wrap up the fall semester, prepare for the holidays, pack for a week in Punta Cana while simultaneously plan for the winter term of classes beginning the second week of January! I have some fun stuff planned for youth, teen, and adult, hopefully you can join me! I’ll be updating this in the coming weeks, so please check back!
