    Hi Peggy,
    I love seeing your photo, and how much it changed between inspiration and paintings. Beautiful work!

      Hi Ruth, I rarely, almost never, show my model or the photo inspiration. And yet it is fun to see the original that sparked my flights of fancy. Thank you for the compliment and comment!

      Hi Sandra, I’ve been working on my story telling. I don’t usually have such a strong “aha” moment. I knew it was a good idea, just had no inkling of where it would go! Thanks for visiting and thanks for the comment.

    What a terrific story! I didn’t realize you had a twin. She is every bit as lovely as you.
    Your art is wonderful and the story of how you developed it makes it even better.
    Thank you for sharing. I just love this!!!

      Thank you Pam and thanks for the compliment. My twin is a creative too. Come to think of it, we were all brought up with a love for the arts, though I don’t have my Mom’s passion for opera.

      As I mentioned briefly to Sandra, I’ve been working on my story telling. I’m finally beginning to realize the power of a good story. It takes work though, doesn’t it?

        I agree Peggy that telling stories takes work. But as you say, there is power in the story. Of course your art tells a story and the power lives there too.
        I personally connect better when I know the story behind the event or the art. For me, and probably for all of us, framing the story into something others can relate to makes it even better.
        Hope that makes sense! Haha! I’ve worked all day and my brain is mush. Happy Easter!

          Hi Pam, I can relate to brain as mush; I’ve been working on my portfolio. It’s all that formatting and thinking. Funny something so obvious as story telling is easy to miss. Is it a sign of maturity that I’m interested in talking about something other than technical stuff. Oh, that brain mush!

          I do hope you have a Happy Easter. Did you do anything fun over at Biker Rags? Thanks!

    I love hearing how you found your muse. I was certain you had been in a coffee shop. Love it!

      Hi Mary, Thank you! Yes, I think the same gesture is prevalent in coffee shops, street corners and grocery stores! Funny how it took seeing my sister with hands to ears to spark my imagination. I’m glad you enjoyed the story and thank you for the comment!
