I love this time of year. (minus my sweet Luca's allergies, he's allergic to tree pollen & we're wondering when we'll see his dark brown eyes again?...) I look out my window at the studio & all the trees are covered in a lacy green. Pretty but with his spring allergies it doesn't look quite the same. We have some exciting studio meetings coming up. I'm nervous & excited all at once. As an artist you end up putting so much of yourself in your work. You put yourself out there in the world & believe there's an audience for your vision. There's a sort of beautiful freedom in this- taking a chance means you're ready to fly.
