    I’ve been wondering why you haven’t been posting. At first I thought you were busy preparing for your show, then it dawned on me to check and see if I’m still listed as following your blog, and sure enough the problem was on my end. i have no idea how that happened. Proble resolved. Now I have lots of catching up to do!

      Thank you so much for letting me know you received the watercolor. Give acrylics a try. It’s really fun! 🙂

        I really want to get started on something – but my working area is a wee bit cramped just at the moment (up in the loft at home). I have a box full of paints all ready for when I can squeeze in the space and time!

        I paints small most of the time. It is harder to drag out all the acrylic stuff, than it is to just play in watercolor, but I seem to paint bolder or something when I play with my acrylics. I hope you try it sometime soon. Maybe on a warm, sunny day in a park. 🙂

    I agree, an optimistic thought generates
    positive vibes throughout the day and of
    course the evenings too…

    Be well my friend

      It certainly does. As we greet each day, we each chose how to be or feel. I find that positive affirmation is a wonderful way to start the day. Thanks for your comment! 🙂

    Can I get the quote that was originally on “Dancing Raven”…thanks…

      This is the quote that was with The Dancing Raven.

      “Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.”
      – Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr

      This fits what you said to your friend about artists “doing it again”. How funny!
