Paintings

You can now find a collection of my paintings on

http://www.fineartamerica.com

Artists are listed by name. There are other categories which may be of special interest to you. Just like blogging, I will be adding so you will come back often!

It looks like many folks are using the site for inspiration. You can comment thereto let me know if you like my work. If you are a member, I will look-see your work.

 Organizing Projects

This is a goal that never gets reached. At least, not by me! There are so many things to do and see and learn and…

Women’s magazines explain how to get organized so that all the household chores can get done. They suggest what to do each day, weekly, monthly and so on. It never worked for me. Cleaning a closet meant emptying things onto the bed. (Made or unmade?) Probably with the sheets thrown down the handy shute or stairs. And there is where the problems began.

Diversions to try on clothes to save or discard. Answer the phone. Read an old magazine. Answer the phone. Lunch time. All the way to bedtime.

And the sheets are off the bed! And all of the closet things are piled on the bed! Hardly a few inches left to lay my head down.

Not a pretty picture. Did I say I started a new painting  after lunch? Surely, no one else has had days like this.

Who knew?

Six months ago, I did not know how much pleasure blogging would be. The writing gives an outlet for the ramblings of my overactive mind. More importantly, I have followed and learned from so many interesting people around the world. That little map WordPress has added tells it all.

I first heard of the internet when some graduate students offered to let me use their  library privileges. At the time, I owned the dark-ages Osborne computer with a 5″ screen. I could not get my head around the possibility of reading directly from the university library. The explosion of knowledge digitized since then is equally hard to believe.

When my grandchildren ask “Were you born before the automobile?” I will share with them my tech history. So there.
