My Purpose...

I was inspired to create this blog by my photographer friend Lisa Fishler. We have done some work together in the past, and she is a constant helping hand to me, as my computer skills are sadly lacking. She has encouraged me to complete my web-site, which I finally finished last summer...a huge relief!! Her website and blog are listed below.
She recently led me to a blog called "Different strokes from different folks", which is an artist network to complete a painting assignment every two weeks, hosted by artist Karin Jurick. The finished results will be on her blog, which is listed below.
This was just the push I needed to get going on a body of work which I can sell. Please check back often, and take the time to look at Karins blog. Such a great idea, and so fun to see everyones different styles and having fun supporting one another!!
