MILESTONE

I started this blog a few years ago with no real thought of where it might go or how long I would stay with it. I just had a desire to share my love of art (and music). I just noticed that it has received over 23,600 page views. Wow...that was unexpected! People from all over the world have visited the blog and I have made some wonderful friends along the way. Me in the technology world, never saw this coming.

WATER MEDIA

Stephen Quiller has been one of my favorite teaching artists for a long time. He just splashes on paint here and there and within a short time, a beautiful painting emerges!!

SVAY TENG DENIS

I enjoy pastel work so much and found an artist that makes it look so easy. Svay Teng Denis does portraits in a beautiful free style that I only wish I could do.
