Glory in the Garden

I have been lax in my posting!! We had our granddaughter last week and there was no hope for doing any artwork. This week I'm trying to get caught up on my Membership Director responsibilities for CPSA.

My other big news is that tomorrow I start the process for getting braces. I'm going to be 60 this year and instead of 60 being the new 40.....I've decided for me 60 is the new 13!

I just sold this piece which was a nice suprise. I created it in 2004 when I was working in a bold circular stroke, sometimes called circulism (the term and technique generated from colored pencil artist Maggie Toole.)

This is gorgeous but I love everything that I've seen of yours.

Congratulations on the sale and good for you not letting age stop you from doing something you want to do! Personally, I think 60 is a great age! lol

You did make me smile with 60 being the new 13! Good luck with the braces

...and nice to see your circulism again

This is simply lovely. You've captured the delicate quality of the rose...I can almost feel the soft petals and smell the fragrance. Congratulations on the sale.

Thank you all so much for the good wishes on my braces...

I'm a bit behind on my responses as I have been preparing for getting the brackets on tomorrow.

And thank you all for the congrats on my sale. It's always gives you hope that you might just make it as an artist when you sell something.
