Having fun


I belong to the Artists of the Round Table yahoo group.  We are studying the Lynn Perrella book 'Artists' Journals and Sketchbooks'.  It's a good book.  We are to do certain lessons and then post our pictures to the group.  Well, I started to do the second lesson and was really struggling with it.  I really don't like following directions!  I don't like reading directions.  I am most happy when I am doing my own idea.  But I pushed through and did the work.  I figured it would be good for me.  Well, I actually ended up having fun.  The picture above is one of the pieces I produced through this lesson.  I really like it.  It's a picture of me as a baby slightly altered.  I am looking forward to doing more of this.

Angie, you were the most adorable baby. I still remember those curls and your dimples. I only have one baby picture from when we were babies. You were the apple of the family's eye and I think you were the one who melted Dad's heart.
