I absolutely love the internet! Case in point: Don't remember quite how I found her, but I did find Saundra Lane Galloway's blog - from reading her blog and comments, I then found Diane Salter's blog - and after reading some of her older posts, I came across Christy Tomlinson and her fabulous "She Art Online Workshop"!!

So, for the last couple of days, I have been glued to my monitor, watching videos of Christy teaching this marvelous way she has of backgrounds, textures, girls and words! While I waited for the videos to load, I went into my studio and started playing around in my art journal. So, the first of my She Art girls, "Anna", was born there. And, I'm not too happy with the background, but I still love her!

There is still a lot more to learn, but now I will be putting these girls on canvases, and exploring what else I can do for them. Stayed tuned!

Nancy, you may not love this background, but I do!! Wow, and thanks for informing us about the website. Great piece!

Hope all is well in Florida. Bob and I spent about 3 weeks during our tandem bicycle ride from Key West, FL, to Portland, ME. We were there in April and it was very hot, and very beautiful. Our trip is documented here: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/bobandmary2

OMG, Mary! I had a some friends that bicycled tandem from Oregon, I think, to Florida a few years ago. More power to you! I read some of your journal - the photos are great!
