Instead of the usual picture and a lot of gabbing about me, I want to chat about you, the readers. I’ll be posting more art shortly.
When I started this blog in December I had my doubts as to whether anyone would come to visit. So as I start my third month of blogging I’d like to express my gratitude to all of you have stopped by, left comments and returned for more! I really appreciate all the encouragement and praise in your wonderful comments. I know that you don’t have to do it, but you took the time and that makes me appreciate it so much more.
This week I was thrilled to see that I was listed as a recommendation by DouDy Sketche. Thanks doudy. Those of you who have visited from there know that it is a delightful blog and a doudy is a delightful person. He says he is a beginning watercolor artist. Well, if he is a beginner, he has loads of natural talent because he has some really lovely work there. He writes great posts documenting his learning process. I really enjoy visiting there. I’m sure you will too.
I want to send more appreciation out to poet Malcolm Lloyd, who featured my colored pencil self-portrait on his blog Excited Fire – Erotic Poetry, Passionate Expression . He wrote a very nice poem to go along with it. Oh, and Malcolm. My mom liked it too.
Here’s more love. These wonderful artists have linked to my blog. Since I am a fan of each of these I am so pleased and grateful to have them add my blog their their blogrolls.
It’s been a great two months of blogging. I feel more confident about my drawing than ever before. I’m starting to refer to myself as an artist without feeling like I’m telling a white lie. Thanks to every one of my visitors for providing much needed validation!
More pictures coming soon!
UPDATE: Thanks to the lovely PamYla for adding me to her blogroll as well. ^_^
