Timeout for Art: Kate’s Work



My daughter, Kate, made a New Year’s resolution to spend some time with her art each day. A working nurse, a mother of four (two teenagers and two young adults), a devoted grandmother, and a tattoo artist who travels from Michigan to South Carolina regularly for work…this was a huge commitment! And yet, she is doing it. Every other day or so, I see a beautiful new drawing. She has covered, as you see here, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, Gene Wilder as Young Frankenstein, and David Bowie at his sexiest. She has others, each one more precious than the last. I’m pleased to be able to show them off, for a couple reasons. First, because she’s very skilled, and I’m extremely proud of her. Second, because I still have nothing new of my own to show!
