This will be a year of many "firsts" for me with this blog being one of them. Creating this was surprisingly easy. I am currently working on a pastel pet portrait of little chihuahua "Che Wee" and have joined an art trading card club and signed up for the "Pointilism" trade. As usual, I'm afraid to begin the projects but once I begin - I can't stop. Here goes to a wonderful artistic journey!
