Today I’m One . . .

       I thought I’d celebrate the birth of my blog by showing you where it all started…with this painting.   Yes, this little decorative painting of daisies has caused me to have an addiction from which I want no cure.

     My dad is an artist, my grandmother was an artist, and my twin sister is also an artist, so no one in my family was surprised by my desire to learn to draw and paint.   I’m no artist, but it doesn’t hurt to dream the little dream, does it?   Maybe I will wake up one morning and some of that paternal DNA will kick in,  and I’ll be a  artist.    But unfortunately it didn’t happen this morning.    I doubt it will happen tomorrow.

I have some of their artwork that I will post in the future.    Anyhow….

     I can’t believe that I have kept up with this blog for a year.  It’s been sporadic at times, but I think I am getting the hang of it.  And I am enjoying every minute of it.

  1. Carol – what on earth do you mean ‘I’m no artist’? Have you SEEN that picture? It’s gorgeous! And if you can do it once you can do it again, then better it, then better that… we’re all improving all the time, and we can all get rusty (got knows I’ve needed the practice recently).

    Congratulations to you and your blog as well, and an excellent choice of blog/ template if I may say so… but then I’m biased… 😀

  2. Happy blog birthday. It’s a real achievement. When I started drawing, and blogging, it really changed things for me. It changed my life. I like to think everyone has an artist in them, it’s just about nurturing that part. Drawing regularly, to me, is the key to that.

    Lovely work.

  3. Happy first year of your blog. I have been very impressed with all of your work and you keep getting better all the time. Keep up the good work.
