5 years

Wow! I have to admit that I’m pretty amazed to still be blogging after 5 years. If someone had asked me back on 20 Feb, 2009 if I had a prediction for what the future held, what would I have said? Probably something about creating art and loving my critters. I never would have guessed my work is kind of on the back burner at the moment while I try to help clear out my parent’s estate. I never would have guessed at the 200+ folks following this blog. I never would have remotely guessed at owning a psycho dog and taking on 2 others for 18 months. Β  I never would have guessed at being where I am in life, and that’s ok. One can never plan for every little thing that comes to your doorstep. We don’t have a crystal ball to see into the future. Β Let there be mystery in life because it’s the journey that counts. May the next 5 bring on more art, crazy wonderful friends, loving family, and continuation of the 4 legged furry house overlords (and feathered ones too)!

A sketchy toast to the next 5! Cheers!



Newsprint, soft pastels and wine.

    1. Painting with it could be quite nice. I didn’t particularly enjoy that bottle. At least Dave does!
      Thanks Elaine!

    1. Thanks Nikki, I hope so too. I’m thrilled to see more of your paintings popping up. I was a tad concerned since we had not seen much from you. But you’ve been busy with artwork! Keep it going!
