Your book sounds fun and interesting! Let me know when it comes out.
Yes, I am still painting. For the past couple of years I have been doing abstracts. You can see my new work at www.leslieannbutler.com. The Paris Nights paintings are on the site too, and maybe you can see the words better. They are in French, and are quotes from my journal. Some are funny and some are serious. If you can't read them and want to know what a particular painting says, just give me the name of the painting and I will give you the quote.
"If Your Hair Falls Out, Keep Dancing!" is a book for women about how to live happily and deal with any kind of hair loss. I've had alopecia universalis, an autoimmune disorder for about 25 years. Thanks for asking! You can get the book on Amazon, or at my place when you come for a studio visit.
