It is time I did something

So my something is to follow the crowd and start a blog.  Specifically to show some of my art.  This goes against my nature so any encouragement you give will be greatly appreciated.

My first piece to share.  A portrait.  Faces are about the only constant in my art.  The medium of choice changes with the hour, but I love observing  faces.  Each is beautiful and so unique.  This face came from an old black and white photogragh of a young woman.  I think she now looks end-of-the-day tired.  Something I am very familiar with.

    Lauren, I am so proud of you for doing this. You should share your work and talent. I wish I had a fraction of your ability to create these beautiful pieces of art. I know your blog will be popular with hundreds of hits every day. I will certainly bookmark it and visit often….although….I’d rather come to your disarranged studio! Love the name. ml

    I had already seen this at your house, of course, but am sharpening my computer skills and managed to pull it up finally. I’m so proud of you!
    Keep painting, please.
