Welcome to my new blog. This is virgin territory for me, so it may require a little patience for all of us. I am doing this for two reasons. First, friends have asked me about having a blog. Second, because I want to use this to share my artwork and writing. There will never be any great national secrets posted here… but I do promise to try to keep it interesting. My inspiration for this blog came after watching the movie Julie & Julia written by Julie Powers. So… in their words (and for lack of a better finish)… Bon Appetit!
