I want to thank two artists who really helped get my blog going. The first is Qiang Huang who has been a major inspiration to me. I was fortunate to take his workshop a year ago and he taught and encouraged us to blog. I met Ann Rogers there and she became an instant friend and helped me with the technical challenges of starting a blog. She has been such a sweet supporter and introduced me to her blogging friends. I said three artists but I just thought of another....Jeff Mahorney. Unfortunately he has been missing in action for a few months now. He has highlighted a couple of my paintings along with many other fine artists on his blogsite art monkey. He is a great artist and Jeff if you are still breathing ,please start posting again. You are an inspiration to me and many others!
And.... a big thank you to those who visit my blog. Your interest and comments mean so much. I feel like your encouragement has helped my growth as a painter over the last year.I truly feel like I have many friends that I have never met.
I may or may not get to post tomorrow. I am headed to Moulton, Alabama to conduct a class in how I paint roosters. They have an annual "chicken and egg festival". I have a good friend who lives there and she signed me on. I picked out one of my rooster paintings and will "try" to lead them through my painting process.
