Poppy Pirouette is new painting in the studio, a freshened up version of a poppy landscape based on the beautiful blossoms of Utah. The weather in Flower Mound was perfect today - sunny and cool, and AnnieBee and her siblings and I spent some time outside tossing toys around and admiring the well behaved big dogs who moved in next door. Today Carlos made grilled chicken and salad, and I cooked up a quadruple batch of Russian Teacakes to send to some good friends who moved away and used to get a plate every year at Christmas. They don't know they're coming, so it will be our secret! I'm not quite sure how best to pack up these round butter cookies and keep them from crumbling in shipment... I'm going to wrap them in clear bags and then put them in holiday tins. Maybe I should have UPS add lots of peanuts? Any suggestions from my baker friends?

Happy New Year's eve to you and your loved ones. Thank you so much for walking with me and the pugs on this art journey in 2011. What a joy it is to be able to do this as a business, and share my own love of nature, flowers, and the world with others.
