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).

Wow!! I didn't realize how long it has been since my last visit to Sea Critters and More - little time, technologies take up lots of time along with job, house chores, and social time. I think technology takes up more time than what we had before technology happened - so, let's all get more technical with our lives (hectic pace without connection). Same old actions with new terminology - generations have been doing the same things for centuries (new technical words) pertaining to what we (as humans) do. Everything is now based on entertainment and anything goes type thinking. Sea Critters are still swimming around, while we are all going insane with hectic lifestyles above the water. Interesting!!
