From the Studio,

Call it "Fat Tuesday" or "Paczki Day" 
I don't follow the flow but I did find a link for if you eat one of them-these little jelly donuts and how to burn the calories off, Check it out Here

 The joke in the house is we carry our own little jelly rolls, a few good laughs and next it was on music
And here's a song(you tube)about a 
Jelly roll-Joe Bonamassa he's awesome. 

I've been using the snow days to create my own paper palette.  I have an solo exhibit coming up at '4th Fridays' Art Event at Starline Factory,  Harvard IL, I'll be a Invited Guest Artist on the Wall in Nancy Merkling's Personal Studio, 2nd floor. So excited...been working on some major pieces for this.

Meaning behind the art: Valentines days is Wednesday of this week my thoughts are there.  Creating a piece with a heart in it.  My word also this year is Heart, and my color palette lately has been a bit bolder and grungier.  I’m thinking it’s because of the time of year where there is more hunkering down inside and more time to mull around in the head. Though I’ve been moving quickly into the heart zone a lot easier. There’s no denying the feelings. As we are learning these days it’s time to lean into them and really feel it.  I love strongly and equally feel the hurt strongly with in the daily happenings.  A bit dramatic but why not put it where it counts.

In the Art, with Heart !
