I'm giving a peek of the canvas sneakers I've been working on. I'm almost done and I'm looking forward to showing them to my nephew. This is his dog "Fonzy". This is my first layer of washes and I'll be working on its mate next. These are new paints that we got specifically for this project. I'm very happy with the painting and I hope Manny likes them.
Now, this is what I'm reading and it is a great read. It was a recommendation from one of the bloggers I enjoy reading. Isn't it wonderful when you find people who care about the same things you do. Before the internet I felt so different and isolated. There was no spark left in me. When I discovered Blogs I finally found some kindred spirits. Anyway, I am so happy I got this book. And the blog I'm speaking of is, "By Sun and Candlelight".
I feel like I'm getting an education catered to my beliefs and I don't have to pay thousands of dollars for this information. I love the internet and the good people who share their experience. I know I'm not a great writer, but I hope to give some inspiration to someone out there who sees some similarities in my life or art.
This has been a great day and I'm so grateful to have my family.
To Thelma, my friend.
I miss you so much.
When I read books like this, I know you are still teaching me to be happy and grateful.
