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).

Waiting for Spring


Just got over a very large snow storm , and I had two days off.  Stayed in most of the time (didn't want to take any chance on falling again). 

Sea Critters don't have to play around on computers, or go goofy from trying to upload programs onto hard drives. 

They swim around all day trying not to be eaten by larger Sea Critters.  

Frogs hide under lily pads, between rocks, or stay in the reeds that grow on the shores and in the water.

I've always liked bull frogs.  They have different sounds, especially at night or early evening.

Time to go.  Listen for frogs croaking this summer!!
