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).

Yahoo loves sleeping next to me as I sit at the easel and paint/sketch. 
She was on her back, sound asleep when I got up to get my camera to take a picture of her -
too late . . . . she got up to see where I went.

Originally, I began to post a Leafy Sea Dragon and a Decorator Crab; but, I couldn't resist posting Yahoo and where she stays whenver I paint or sketch.  So, below is a Leafy Sea Dragon that is found off the coast of southern Australia.  He's hard to spot when surrounded by seaweed.

Another, hard to spot sea critter is a Decorator Crab, who hides in seaweed;
some wear sponge hats to be inconspicuous.
