I would have liked to copy & paste the whole article here but you really must go to Johanna's blog and read for yourself ... believe me, it's worth it ! Please go there now and read what we all know, what we all feel, and you will come away a stronger woman/artist !
I have been reading your blogs, may not have responded, but I am keeping in touch with you. I, personally, do not have anything much on the go right now, but when I read this post, an hr. ago, I knew I wanted to share that with as many of you as possible ... getting me started.
News: I am waiting with bated breath, to hear whether or not I am accepted into a local art show. I am very nervous as I have never entered a drawing before, never been judged on my drawing ability. (Here is exactly where that blog by Johanna fits into a niche in my head.)

On Sat, I will begin another house-sitting job, where I intend to paint a lot of fabric for future use and I hope to start this there ... built by my s-i-l several years ago on a wet foggy morning. He took the picture and has given me (only) permission to use. I took a shot of it, whilst full screen on my computer, with my iPad, so that I will have it house-sitting to check for colour (of which there are many that aren't immediately noticeable).
Since the Grow Your Blog event in January, I have made a number of new blogger friends and have won some ' give away's'. A CD of the beautiful singing voice of Fil Campbell and a cute pincushion by Susan Leschke.
Today I received a beautiful pendant, with sterling silver wire and fresh water pearls from Lindi. Thank you again, ladies.
