Blog-a-Versary!!

Yesterday was the second anniversary of this blog, which was started as a knitting blog, would you believe it? Then Diane our ring leader invited me to join the Artful Quilters Ring and it started being more about quilting, with knitting and cooking and shopping and now painting. Ooops, I left out gardening and parties. O, you know it is just about what's happening now.

We had a very quiet Thanksgiving but it started out great with a phone call from my sister Brooke in Singapore! Wow! What a treat that was. And I also talked with my niece Glory and had some good laughs. Amazing what technology we have these days.

Then I started a new painting which I am very excited about. It is the farthest removed from anything I have ever done and in my search for "the way I will paint now" I am feeling as though I may be on the right road, at last.

I know I have to enjoy the process and be thrilled with the product, and that is a tough nut to crack. However, as I wade through all the possibilities, I am discovering things I don't like to do and eliminating those, and keeping the things I like. Simple eh? As if.






These are merely details of the underpainting, so everything could change with the next layer.
As for the blog, it has revolutionized my thinking, my habits and my confidence. I feel I have made friends and connected with people of like minds. I am really happy to have found this outlet for my creative efforts and my thoughts. Not always the same thing. Ha!

  3. Happy Blogiversary Number Two, Mel! I'm finding it interesting where you're going with the painting. Are you giving up quilting or is this just another venue for your creativity? I don't really quilt or paint but I love reading about your processes! I feel like I've watched you really begin to find your very own "voice". Congrats! I'm kind of envious!
