I Dared!

My other blog Art Hearts Journey is up and running ... Not without much help from my dear blogging buddy Veronica. She probably has a big headache today. Sorry V. It's not quite finished, and I'll put the frills to it later, but its a blog that I've wanted to do ....its crafty, its personal and it's me just without the paintings (well, almost) .

Aside from Painting Art

These are some of the ATC's or Artist Trading Cards that I've made. I picked up a square frame at a Thrift store and it was perfect to display them. Besides painting and drawing, I've always had to create something, anything. ! So I've decided to post those 'others' onto another blog. Art Hearts Journey The murals, miniature houses, art journals, quilts, needleworks, weird looking dolls, painted rugs on wooden floors ... just to have a record of some of my thoughts and small acomplishments and sometimes big blunders. .

A Tribute To Georgia O'Keefe

I've always admired Georgia O'Keefe. Not only for her large flower paintings but as a woman she crossed all lines in both her art and personal life. I have a book .. Georgia O'Keefe Art and Letters. (1987) One of the letters she wrote to a dear friend said in part "I don't see why we ever think of what others think of what we do-no matter who they are-isn't it enough to just express ourselves ?" There is a film coming up this month (TV) and I'll be sure to catch it. Although I've painted and posted many a poppy, (my banner on this blog) neither of these are poppies and both were done years ago.
