“The heat of Autumn is different from the heat of Summer.
One ripens the apples, the other turns them to cider.”

Happy Holiday Season!
During the shorter days of Autumn, it seems we are transitioning from unpredictability to the promise of lighter, brighter days ahead.
Maybe we can celebrate the Season of Thanksgiving and the anticipation of Christmas with new hope.  Celebrating in full!
So here’s the update.  The building where the gallery is located is up for sale.  Bemis is not planning in person classes anytime soon.  However, check out the online catalog.  Registration for Winter/Spring is now!  Lots of fun offerings.  Classes at the gallery have obviously not resumed…but sales have been incredibly great even with limited hours.  I can not complain.
On a personal note….Aaron has received a clean bill of health.  Headache free and doing fantastic.  Sherri has started her own massage biz “Roots and Wings Therapies” and is happy to visit you in the comfort of your home!
Brie is busy busy being Mommy to Philip now in first grade & Edie, almost two and feisty as ever.  I have loved spending lots of time with them.  Doug is crazy busy working from home for popular ZOOM.
I miss everyone so much.  Hoping you are all healthy and doing well.
I know things will get better eventually and we will be back again with brush in hand.  Ready to splash ahead with paint and paper!
Here’s something very special from my last visit with the littles.  So curious and innocent.  Philip and I were swinging when he tells me boldly….”Grandma, it doesn’t matter who people vote for.  They can still be friends.  I like the Giants and my best friend Chris doesn’t, but we still like each other.”   You are so right Philip!
I would love to hear from you all.  Cannot wait to eventually be together in person.
So…although this year’s harvest might not find you breaking bread with those you love, I hope you have much to be thankful for. 
I know I do.  And all of you are on the list.  
Happy Thanksgiving!
