Well, it seems that everyone has a blog these days and I guess I've put off having one long enough. I'm not sure that I'll have anything to say that anyone will want to read but this is a fun way to share my life with anyone who does happen by here. I also plan to share any progress I make with my art and I hope you'll enjoy looking at both the failures as well as the successes!

I don't know the percentage of art that actually sees the light of day, but I thought it might be a good idea to have a record of growth (or, lack of it, as the case may be) in the various mediums as I experiment with them. I guess you could compare it to those yardstick marks on a child's bedroom wall that show how much they've grown over the years. I guess I can't use a real measuring device but maybe I can eventually come up with some sort of system for measuring progress.

I don't count myself proficient in any medium so this will be a definite journey of learning and I hope I really have the intestinal fortitude to post any of the really awful stuff I may paint!

Come to think of it - why should you be subjected to awful art - don't you see enough of it while browsing the web?

Tune in again to see if I'm courageous or just downright chicken!

Hi Jan,
Great opening! I'll put a link on my blog for you, if that is okay. Posting all your work is both rewarding and a learning experience.
Happy blogging,
