starting again ....

that's me in the pic ...circa 1969 based on how big my baby brother is....so there i am in the big bow, itchy blouse, very short dress and patent leather mary janes .... i remember the outfit, the grapefruit tree, the how much i disliked the shirt under the jumper .... but i don't think i remember this specific event ... the photo shoot .... i loved the bow ... it was a long, long, sheer ribbon, maybe four inches wide ... with tiny blue dots on it ... i had another just like it with red dots .... on the fourth of july i wore them together for years and years... i wore them tied on top to the half ponytail i usually sported ..... i still like mary jane shoes ... though my daughters have both outgrown the style, i have them in black, brown, and orange ... though none of them are patent leather ....

so ... i've been remiss in my blogging habits ... but intend to get better .. right now ... here i am, fresh start .... maybe it's a spring thing ... or maybe cause i've had some big stuff that is done ... or maybe cause i have a small show in a few weeks that i need to gear up for (read: make more art fast) ... but anyway .... i hope to renew my blog efforts .... i'm well behind in stuff i could have been showing you in my weeks (eek, months) away .... so ... to new beginnings .... come back tomorrow for a pic of a painting i've done recently ... and pottery, i had a great pottery class this week .... and the wizard of oz .... i did some oz painting too ... so ... i'll catch you up ... then i'll try harder to stay caught up .... using the whole thing to get my art reinvigorated so that i'll have something interesting to show you ....

until tomorrow ...

sorry you did not like that itchy blouse-you never said! I love that picture; think it was an attempt at Christmas card pic 1969.
