When I first started this blog, I had no idea that I would become so attached to the whole process. I had intended to use it as a tool to drive more traffic to my website but it has turned into something else entirely.
I enjoy sitting down at the computer first thing in the morning before the rest of the household wakes up to see what's going on in other artist's lives. I learn so many things from other artists, from technical tips to organizing solutions. But most of all I've met so many wonderful people. I believe artists are sensitive souls and we all feel a connection in the inspiring process of creating art. Our artwork stands as a beacon of hope in a troubled, chaotic world.
I'm off to Florida tomorrow, to the land of warm weather. It's an unexpected trip and it couldn't have come at a better time. I'm going with my husband to Naples for business and then across the state to visit my step mother and her mother (she's 96 and still going). When I come back, I expect to be less sunlight deprived and ready to go at the easel with full force. The last few months, I've gotten my feet wet and hopefully will have some goals that I've so far been reluctant to post.
At this particular moment in time, I want to thank all the wonderful artistic souls out there for the difference you've made in my life with your blogs. Peace!
