KALEIDOSCOPE

Today marks my 400th post on this blog. Yeah! Thanks to Rhonda's encouragement, this blog was begun in October, 2007, over 784 days ago ..... intended to be a record of my art journey to share with grand kids and family. When it was started, little did I know of all the wonderful connections we bloggers would make together.

Posted today is a kaleidoscope of some of my own favorite paintings which have already been seen here over the past two years, not in any particular order at all. This journey is so much fun. Thank you all for visiting here, for the positive feedback and helpful suggestions. What an extraordinary journey we share!

What a wonderful venture to view each of the paintings. I don't have a favorite as all are unique and special. Congratulations on your 400th post and look forward to the next 400. Thanks for all the encouragement and sharing that you do.

OH WOW SANDY - MAGIC to see them all together. How could one ever choose a single painting to purchase if they were all hung in a show. The figures are all outstanding, the YUPO such fun and clever techniques, the animals etc etc - all wonderful work I would be so so proud of if only I could work in this unique way. I remember so many over the past 2 years I fell in love with when you first posted.

I have been blogging since January 2008 and too find such encouragement and upliftment to 'talk to' and share ideas with so many inspirational artists worldwide.

Thanks for allowing us the chance to look over your shoulder and glad I've have had the privelege to get to "know" you a little bit and have your Penguin print near, for me to enjoy, and be inspired by.

Congrats!!!

I'm so glad you kept on through the struggle of learning blogging and all that it entails. It was great fun to revisit some of these old friends in paintings - some of which I actually watched you create :) Here's to another 400!!!

Suzanne McDermott said...

Awesome to see so much of your work in one spot! I was thinking of just such a thing myself while going through old posts. Congratulations on your 400th entry!!!! Now, I'll have to count mine up. Not only did I fall off the blogging routine but your blog fell off my reader. I've been so hard at work on other things I failed to notice (a lot in the blogosphere!) You're back on now! You enrich our lives - thank you!
