Thank You

It's been a little while since I posted, but I did want to thank all of my visitors who stop by, and for all those great comments. A lot of times I can't answer the comments since the email address is not included. So please, leave your email, I would love to thank you.
I hope to update my blog in the next few days.
This summer has been extremely distracting for me. I usually don't post about my personal life, but wanted to explain why I have been so quiet. Early in July, my Father passed away. He had been ill, and he passed in peace. Then I was tasked to deal with the arrangements and estate business. If you have ever done any of these things, you know how time consuming and draining these can be. While working in his house, I re-injured back, and so for the past several weeks, I have had xrays, MRI, new medicine, and currently physical therapy. I am finding out that as I get older, I am having to deal with aches and pains, and some will probably continue. Hoping to be more mobile soon.
Most of all I am looking forward to the cooler months, and getting a lot more things done.

While making digital art for PaperWhimsy, I post a lot of my artwork over on the PaperWhimsy Inspiration blog, along with Nancy Maxwell James, which is updated every two weeks Please stop by and visit. We also offer mini tutorials.
Thanks again, I always love to hear from you.


  1. Your piece is so angelic...for good reason too. It is beautiful. You create wonderful art. Sorry to hear about back problems...I think we all feel for you on this one and of course deep condolences on the passing of your father. I don´t think your fans are going anywhere and sometimes life comes first and this is one of those times for you. I think we should all be "allowed" to not feel we must post so and so many postings on our blogs. Take care of yourself and all the best to you and your family.

  2. Hi Rande,

    Good to see you´re back.
    All my throughts are by you.

    Your new piece is darling. Love this little girl. Fantastic digital work.

    Have a lovely weekend my dear.

  3. Ah. So that's how you've been. I'm so sorry, Rande, I remember you telling me about your visits w/your dad and the pups. And yes I do know about all the paperwork - I didn't mention it, but my mother passed away this year too. 2010 has been a long hard ride.
    I hope your back is feeling much better, if not now, soon.
