As of today, Sunday,  July 26, I have just one more Portrait class to teach before I am off for summer break.  I had hip replacement surgery ten days ago, so I will be taking the month of August off to recover and resume my daily routine of walking my dogs and swimming.  I also hope to do some painting in preparation for entering a few upcoming art shows (BWS, MAA Kensington) later in the summer.  Watch this space in a few weeks as I will post my schedule of classes for the Fall.
