So nice to hear all these warm welcomes.
well I'd been watching EBSQ for a long time (as a patron from afar). There are so many online venues out there, and each one is a commitment of time sitting at the computer not to mention money...and I am already over committed in both. I was so impressed when I emailed questions to support @ EBSQ on a Sunday afternoon ---expecting to wait a at least a business day or 2 before hearing back, and I had a great response from Amie within a couple of hours!
OK so I love to paint dancers, people, animals............whatever I find beautiful and exciting at time. In another life I worked on Wall street (started drawing on the side there), moved to London, worked there, got laid off (yippee) became more of a full time artist, had a baby (late in life!) moved to Washington, got divorced, money tight, but we're making it, me and my girl who is 14 now.
I love to write for Squidoo (although to do a single lens takes me months), but it is worth it. I have most of my work on FAA, and have my work in exhibits locally at times. I practice yoga, and am very drawn to that state of inner peace - and would like to convey that in paint. I would love to have a few more lifetimes to explore everything that is exciting to draw and paint and all the ways it can be done
