Create a blog......
This was on my list of "things to do when I retire". I retired at the end of Dec. 2011 and I am now just getting started. To be honest, I have had "cold feet" about this endeavor. I LOVE reading blogs, especially art related blogs. I wanted to jump on the bandwagon. Well, now, here I am in this "post" box and it's like looking at a new blank white page in an art journal....what will I do? what will I say? what will I share? and who cares? But, never let it be said that I'm not brave. Please bear with me while I learn this new creative outlet. I think I will have to engage the help of a friends for help as the words gadget, insert a jump break, etc. give me a scare.
To start, I recently took the most wonderful online art class from the amazing Junelle Jacobson - her blog is: yesandamenblog.blogspot.com/ - it was through Christy Tomlinson [another outstanding artist] her blog is: christytomlinson.typepad.com/. Christy had set up a special group on Facebook for students from this class to share their art. Through this group many, many of Junelle's students have interacted and there are so many beautiful posts I can't even begin to tell you.
I am going to attempt to post some of the artwork I have created taking this class....thank you for stopping by and I hope to be able to continue this little blog as it seems like it will be fun.
As a footnote: the first and last pictures are in an art journal and have a lot of texture....the middle was created on canvas board! Thanks again!
