Sorry, I’ve been neglecting my WordPress account and using my Tumblr blog http://chrystalchan.tumblr.com/ more often due to convenience.  (My instagram account hooks up straight to it!)  But, I will still keep this up to date…just a bit slower.  I’ll be posting one more blog post right after this, for information of the upcoming show this Saturday!  Stay tuned!

tumblr_n5hhpjCyjc1qcyjxso1_500My painting, ‘Clearing Clouds’ is on a wine bottle : )!!  The wine is called ‘Head in the Clouds’ : ).  It is made by Behrens Family Winery in St. Helena, California (part of Napa Valley).  Can’t wait to try it. Thanks Les!
