I guess you'll get the short and sweet version so here goes....I enjoyed my time away from the blog but didn't get much done. I've learned something about myself and that is whatever I have to do, I'll use whatever amount of time I have to do it! So with all that "extra" time not spent on blogging, I just spread my other chores out over that time.
My painting classes are great and I'm having fun although all I've painted so far are a couple of backgrounds and laid down the gesso for a face on one of them. I have drawn a lot of faces (they're over on Artopia) and kept up with "The Big Draw" so that's good.
One afternoon last week, I had some time to play in the studio. That was the day I put down the gesso for a face....and I got all my face colors mixed up and was ready to go when the phone rang. It was my son calling from Alaska!!....so the paints sat there and dried up.

He called with great news....he'll arrive on Nov 2 and be able to stay through the holidays!! We're all happy about that....plus he'll be here for his birthday, too.
While he's here I'm going to try to lure him back into art. As a kid he was a member of a young artist's group, and he continued on with art, taking some graphic art classes in college. But I don't think he's done anything art related in years. So I'm giving him free rein in the studio and we'll see what happens.
Ok, that's about all I can remember from my original post. And just so you know it's really me I've included one of those quiz thingies! For some reason it won't load up any closer so you might have to scroll down a bit.
