Who taught me to write thank you notes
and a radio to take to the beach.
Who took me to visit my grandparents
and set a beautiful table.

Congratulations to my brilliant husband who was just named the University of Utah Preceptor of the Year! He mentors newly trained Dietitians from the U, BYU and other areas of the world. Way to go!
He also writes amazing science fiction, if you need a really good story with excellent characterization, a twisting plot and unexpected ending please check out his Commodore Farmer on Amazon.com, you’ll be glad you did.
The University of Utah’s BFA Show is Friday, April 19 in the Felt Building, 341 South Main Street from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. during the Gallery Stroll in Salt Lake City. I have five pieces in the show; this oil, 3 watercolors and an etching. This was a response to Cezanne’s apple paintings in the late nineteenth century, it represents a 21st Century American still life; I call it American Kitchen. Come see the show!
