does anyone know of an art community, where people live/own their own work places? I don't care were it is. I just moved into a new studio after losing my last one to a developer, and now I might lose again to another corporate developer. So am willing to move anywhere to be with fellow artists, and own my own place.
would like to thank Thaneeya, and Joy Evens for their emails. It meant a lot to me, since i'm so isolated where…READ MORE

Well, just finishing up a few writing deadlines before going full tilt into art. I went out and bought a new drawing table to put into my office/studio. Getting really excited about this, it just feels right. Thank you everyone for your support!

Well, beware the Ides of March. Spring is almost upon us. I've been painting steadily since the first of the year and have gotten pretty good feedback on my efforts.

This art show was in Morgan City Louisiana. I really enjoyed it. I was places by two very good friends. Caroline Simoneaux and Rhonda Dennies. Rhonda wrote the Green Bayou Series books. We had a great time and I actually sold more than anticipated.

I love colour and I am not really a fine detail person! I find that when I start painting, I lose myself in the tones and hues more than the exact size and shape of things. It's true of my thinking style I am a big picture thinker and an ideas person and then I hand the fine detail over to someone else.
I always had a pencil and paper in my hand as a child and used to love sitting on trains and buses looking out of the window and drawing whatever I saw. However, I was not encouraged…READ MORE
I just found out that my publishing house, my home away from home if you will, is closing down in a few months making my biggest seller, EMPTY GRAVES unavailable. A lot of my friends are worried about me, and I do admit, it's like having a stake in the heart. Part of my soul died. As strange as this may sound, I'm okay with that. I am looking at this as an opportunity to explore art as a secondary income. I've heard other writers say they paint a picture with words. Well, I am going to tell…READ MORE
