Happy new year, everyone! It has been an eventful December in the Gackstatter household, as we have moved from Missouri to Illinois- only 30 miles- and now live on the opposite side of St. Louis.
We moved out of town near a nature preserve and now don't have the sound of busy streets and sirens.
Only birds and the hourly church bells. It's pretty wonderful and I am thankful.
This is a painting from our back window today as it rains and the temperature drops. With this, my first painting in my new studio (out of the garage- woohoo!) AND the first painting of my 31 paintings in 31 days I do yearly with several amazing artists, writers and friends, I wish everyone a much improved and blessed 2022. Love to you all! Gretchen
