    This week has been a busy week, mostly filled with music projects. Painting outside is still out of the question, it’s freezing cold: -18 C. this morning. I did make a drawing for illustration friday and I managed to draw some head sketches.

    Last thursday on ValentineĀ“s Day I played a concert for high school students at the local library. Tomorrow night I’ll be playing with the band at a ski resort.
