Setting Up My Blog

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for visiting my Blog! This is my first post and I'm struggling with the set up, so please be patient.

Why a Blog? Well, I have been fortunate enough to be selected for a year long art mentorship with a great artist, Linda Blondheim, (http://lindablondheim.com/home.html).

Linda has selected four artists, who are embarking upon their professional career, to mentor and guide for a year as we start the process of setting up an art business. One of our first homework assignments is to set up an art Blog. This is going to be my social medium for discussing my artistic process and displaying my art.

I hope you will join me on my journey - setting up my art business and becoming a full-time painter. Please consider becoming a "follower" and receive an email from me every time I up date this.

Wish me luck! And thanks for visiting!


Photo of the day - Lions and tigers and bears...Oh my!

Here's a photo from Kenya in the Masai Mara game preserve. We saw 2 lionesses and 8 cubs just in this group! It was a fantastic trip with beautiful wildlife, people, colors and vistas in every direction - many lifetimes of artistic inspiration! I couldn't take enough photos and I got thousands on my month long trip! Enjoy this one!
