Today I want to put my journal page at the beginning....
This page made me stop and think about the world of blogging. I entered this world back in Feb. of 2006, never for a moment realizing how it would completely change my life. I know I've said this before, many times, but I think it's worth repeating....blogging changed my life.
Without all of you I doubt that I would be doing art today. And if I was, it would most definitely not be anything like what I'm doing now. I might be making little sketches of blank faced women because I didn't think I could draw a face before I began blogging.
I had never taken any kind of art class and probably wouldn't have had the nerve to even if there was one available. Now I've taken several online art classes and learned so much.
I never would have had all the friends from around the world that I have now. And some of my art even resides in some of their homes in other countries.
The support and encouragement I have received from other bloggers has truly been a driving force in the development of my art and for that I am eternally grateful to each and every person who has ever left me a comment. I know that recently it may not seem like I care because I don't respond to comments in a timely manner but believe me that is only because of a lack of time and has nothing to do with a lack of interest.
I have found a wonderful, friendly, encouraging and supportive world of friends here in Blogland and the page I did today is dedicated to all of you. I would be lost without you! I would not be doing art and I would not have grown as much as I have in the past three years.
Thank you....each and every one of you! You make my day when you stop by for a visit.
