What are you prepared to do?

Waitaminute! Isn’t this post three days late? What happened to Friday? I’m lazy? Well, also, I want to hit the right note for the finale. So, read on for the end to “Creative Week”. A post I affectionately title, “What are you prepared to do?” Time to let you in on a little secret: this… Read more »

Have art will travel

Day two of “Creative Week”! What’s in store today? How about some more tales of my artistic adventures. Specifically, how, during this period, I am always with my trusty sketchbook and pencils. Everywhere I go, hence the title, “Have art will travel”. So, I mentioned yesterday that I only had one art class in my… Read more »

An artful life

Another “blast from the past” out of my old MySpace blogs.  Read on…   Today, I’ll relate to you some more color on a point I made many posts ago about having a family with a creative bent. Let’s select a few of the members and take a look at what I meant. Starting out with… Read more »
