During the pauses in my work, I bake.

During the month of December I baked 500 plus cookies to deliver to friends. Each year I say it is my last but I'm drawn into it by my creative spirit. Not to mention how excited I feel when my family and friends enjoy them so much. I also discovered that it is much like my painting.("I paint because I have to"). I don't make just the average cookie but some are subtle, some bold, others wild with flavor, most have origins from different cultures. Wow! am I talking about baking or my Art Work? I suppose both. Several of my images were purchased by an art collector and will be hung in the Monterey Peninsula Hospital. The thought that others will see my images in a quiet peaceful setting of the hospital gives me great peace and the inspiration to continue putting paint to canvas.
