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).

Applying Art to Different Areas

It's been a long time since I've posted anything to my blogsite.  I have not forgotten, I've just gotten busy.  I have more time and I'm in the process of setting up some type of daily schedule on a weekly basis; yet, I have not been able to get any organized days.  I paint; but, I'm painting birds.  I still love Sea Critters and the sea, light houses, and beaches.  Yet, I think my Dad would be happy to see me painting birds.  He's a caretaker of birds in heaven.  He always had bird houses around the yard until the day he passed.  I'm working with the computer, painting, reading, working part-time, and having a social life with friends, family, and loved ones.  I'll be adding some more Sea Critters.
