I have been doing sketching in my Atlanta 2 journal. Just some quick faces, on the pages opposite the BFA figures from my sketchbook. I have added some color to the figures with water-soluble crayons and I'm not sure I... Continue reading

Testing to see if I can post videos in blog posts. Oh, my! It appears I can send videos from my Amazon Kindle to the Cloud to my Computer to my YouTube and then post them in blog posts! YAYYY... Continue reading

In my ongoing quest to 'put away' all of my old photos and Journaling Project pieces and artwork as well as dealing with old emotional baggage, I feel the need to express how very important it has been learning to... Continue reading

We often make little pies in our Pampered Chef muffin stone. We both get up so early that we don't have time to eat breakfast at home, so we always take it with us. Sometimes it's hot cereal made beforehand... Continue reading

While up in Vancouver I discovered some old family photos I didn't know about. My sister L. and brother-in-law had them - pages from old photo albums. They said that I could take some, so I sorted through and picked... Continue reading

I hurt my back. I am laid up at home this week recovering. When I went to Vancouver for my birthday, I took a duffel bag and messenger bag with me, so I wouldn't have to check any luggage. I... Continue reading

My siblings flew me up to Vancouver, BC for my birthday, so I could meet my nephews' kids. So I turned 50 in Vancouver, BC! Had a wonderful time. Will catch up later. Continue reading

I reblogged this on Tumblr but things tend to get washed out to sea in the ton of posts and reblogs so I wanted to post this here. The text below is from a study referenced in a story on... Continue reading

I don't carry a purse every day. I carry a backpack to work, with a big square insulated lunch pack, a spiral notebook for making (personal, art-related) notes, a snack bag, a coffee travel cup. I have no room for... Continue reading

I wrote about my time in Atlanta, but it was mainly facts about what happened when. I have been doing some journaling about the broader issues of how I was back then and how I have changed. As a result,... Continue reading

Fall of 1994 I worked on the portfolio of work that gained me entrance into graduate school. I took my figures and had them reacting to a less-chaotic background than my BFA Final Portfolio work. I have none of these... Continue reading

Symon is three years old! And 16.5 lb. We aren't sure why he kept growing - he's not fat, just big. Last July I took this photo and it reminded me of a pic I took of him as a... Continue reading

I had my BFA Portfolio painting slides scanned by GoPhoto. I finally got them back. When they are scanned they send a link to view the images, but it occurred just after a payday, so I didn't have the money... Continue reading

I swear in the past couple of weeks Symon looks bigger. He's almost three years old. How can he still be growing? He's not fat, but he's gotten bigger all over. Even his paws! I just took the photo on... Continue reading

In 1994 I was fretting over turning 30 having done nothing with my life. I put together another portfolio of work. I have no idea what this work was either. I took my slides to show Professor M. I also... Continue reading

In 1993 Dad came to Atlanta with a friend who had to take a business trip and wanted Dad to share the driving. They passed through Atlanta in the afternoon, so we walked over to Underground (this was when the... Continue reading

Sometime in the Spring of 1992 Dad sent out a formal engagement announcement with a professional photo. Everyone in Chicago was shocked. Some family in Chicago tried to get him to hold off, but he was determined and would not... Continue reading

Mom and Dad were planning a huge cross-country camping trip. They did a lot of traveling regularly, to Chicago to see family, to Michigan, to the East coast, to the Gulf Coast, occasionally out West or to Iowa or Nebraska... Continue reading

Abandoning my BFA Final Portfolio artwork remains one of my life’s biggest regrets. My internal Typo I am worthless led me to believe that my artwork was worthless. My artwork wasn’t like what I saw in the art magazines, was... Continue reading

A few behind-the-scenes, outtakes or other photos not used in other blog posts. Also, since the scanning of the slides is taking some time, I am going to go ahead and publish the rest of the Atlanta posts. I will... Continue reading

I learned how to shut down my Left Brain with the book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. That book never helped me with drawing, but I remembered the techniques for shutting down the verbal left brain (vs.... Continue reading

Looking back on the BFA Figures, especially since realizing that my inability to speak out is the thing that has been hampering me for so long, I can now see the restraint in my artwork. It was marvelous the way... Continue reading
