What Are We Doing Here?

Dear Readers,

Yesterday marked the one-month anniversary of my new combined blog and website, and a little over four years since I initially started my art blog.

When I began my blog, I did not have a clear idea of why I was starting a blog (read my tiny first post).   I started it because I could, I guess.

It’s a Great Day!

It's my birthday!

And it's a perfect spring day here in Austin. It's sunny and warm, and the trees are all leafing out in a lovely shade of fresh green. My bougainvillea, lantana, and various other flowering plants are in spectacular bloom. My garden presented me today with the 4 beautiful calla lilies you see here.

Looking Back at 2008

This is that time of year when I think it's natural for us to look back and see what we accomplished (so we'll know what to focus on next year, and what to pat ourselves on the back for).

One Blog is Better Than Two

...well, at least, according to my husband, who is more of a lumper than a splitter. I'm constitutionally more of a splitter in my lifelong vain attempt to get organized. I have, however, discovered great wisdom in this man I married, including how much easier life is when you lump rather than split.


Welcome to my artblog! Every so often I actually feel like talking, so I'll do it here now and then. Topics will mostly be about art in general or my art in particular. Check back here sooner or later... Thanks for stopping by.
