Let's (slowly) get started...

Everyone has interests, hobbies, talents, and creative ideas. It's great sharing - getting feedback and giving feedback when asked. Years ago, when I attended the Cleveland Institute of Art, we became a family with the Cleveland Institute of Music students. It was great - artists and musicians coming together and sharing thoughts.

I really miss those days of listening to others speaking about new innovations, sharing their thoughts and opinions. Sometimes, I think how sad it is that society has closed up a lot of minds - fear of sharing ideas and having open discussion.

When graphic art (fine art) totally disappears, humanities will be gone. Yes, we do have the technology of using computer software to create images. It's great having this tool - but, it's only a tool to enhance Commercial Art.

I hope the days of Picasso and other creative artists (using paint brushes and canvases) never stops or goes away.

Unfortunately, small art galleries are disappearing. Cities are attempting to save local artists by allowing us to hang our paintings in City Halls.

I am an artist. My first husband was a musician. Soul-wise, it was a beautiful relationship of communication, listening, and understanding each other. Artists and musicians are rare people (yet, we seem to be many). Creativity is rare (yet, many have the abilities).

Combining Something Special Designs with Sea Critters and More!

Friends have all different personalities.  It's wonderful that each individual person is one of a kind - and no one else is exactly alike. It gives everyone an opportunity to share talents, abilities, skills, thoughts, opinions, and feelings with one another.
Or, not share.  Unfortunately, many people are afraid to show others who they are as individuals.  So many beautiful facets go left unseen.

I think, artists have a larger perspective on life - it's easy to share with others.  It's easy to show feelings and thoughts, present their artwork, and talk.  It's all out their, in their artwork!!
