Well Hello...

YES it HAS been a terrible long time since I have posted anything here.  The last knowledge you may have had was i was going to open a gallery in the Town Museum and help them run the museum.   That didn't work out so well, so I bought the building I had originally looked at to buy; which is IN town and in the most perfect location.  I am currently renovating the inside and hope to be opening soon.
I have begun trying to work in my art journal everyday to get practice in and be more in tuned with the processes I like to use...I find it helps me open the channels of creativity and do some exploring not making me pull out a creation just do it.
Currently I am getting down characters from a series of books i enjoy by Diana Galbaldon..
The Higlander series a historical collection for Scotland in the 17 and 1800's and then embarking on settling in America in the mountains of NC.



Bree (daughter to Jamie and Claire)

Rollo Ian's Wolf dog

Ian (young) Jamie's nephew
Ian as a Mohawk warrior adopted into the tribe in exchange for Roger (Bree's husband)

this is as far as I have come....

I know a lot more has been going on but it is pretty much all related to moving in moving out and redoing the Gallery...soon pictures to depict those changes
you can keep up with the remodel and the artists who add work at the FB page

like the page if you so feel inclined...

The plan is to be a better poster...
thanks for hanging in there waiting for me and I appreciate everyone who emailed me looking for me..

Good to hear from you Mar! Glad you are back! I hope your opening goes well. I like the characters you have painted. I quite often do things in my journal inspired by books I am reading-it is a good source of inspiration.
