  Okay,I  have had a few people ask do you have a blog? the answer has always been. no. I don"t. Its easy they say, you should try.
  Well there are stages, phases and cycles in our life. I am in the winter stages of my life and I'm in a draw and paint stage, definitely in the final spin cycle.
  I don"t have any great advice and my opinion's are probably of no interest, to anyone.I don"t sing. I don"t dance, and if I try and tell a joke.... I'll do one of two things, forget the punch line or screw it up and spend the next 20 minutes trying to explain it! I don"t cook, nor read much. I don"t travel or have cute pets to talk about.
  So all I have is the drawing and paintings I have been doing of late. Arts and craps have always been my go to for having creative fun. My children are grown, My grandchildren are mostly adults, one teen and one pre-teen. My husband has retired from two 20 plus year careers.What all this means is simple......I have to much time on my hands and I spent my days doing art.
  This year I am taking several online classes. Life book 2014, Soul Food 2014, Studying under the Masters, just finished a great class with Karen Milstein, Gorgeous Girls, with Kat McBride, Book of Days and several other groups and interests.
  One of the current groups is 29 faces in February that is done by Ayala Art. This is her third year, my second. Another free group is Gritty Jane"s 40 portraits challenge by Jane Spakowsky.
  I will try and show my portraits for the face challenges, as my first blog.

  10. Oh, my honey, I am SO HAPPY you started a blog! Just for the record, you are so funny and interesting, I can't believe you will have a hard time finding something to say! Even if you just post your amazing art and don't say anything, I'm so glad you will have the blog so that you can get your beautiful work seen by a wider audience! Your art deserves to be seen by as many people as possible!

    I love all your faces (YOU KNOW IT!), but I especially love the one third one up from the bottom. I can't quite put my finger on why, but for some reason, it reminds me of the work of Lou Shabner (who I love!)...maybe the coloring? I don't know...but for some reason, that's what I thought of right away when I saw her!

    I am doing the happy dance over your blog! And I am now your most ardent follower! <3<3<3
