Very excited to join this group. Sorry, I did not contribute yesterday but will honestly try to make an effort everyday.
Allow me to introduce myself and tell you all a little bit about myself. I am the mother of four grown children and a grandmother of two. I grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania and took art lessons as a child at the Erie County Art Museum as well as attended an arts and crafts group. Art, to me, has always been a part of my life, as a child, (as I just stated) as a teenager, (I would carry my art supplies with me and draw while babysitting) as well as when I became a parent (my children and I would do different craft projects as a family). I still have Christmas decorations that we made as a family when they were very young.
But, over time, it seems the monotony of everyday life has gotten to me and I do not seem as inspired as I use to be. I am hoping that through your art and your inspiration I can find that that I've seemed to have lost for the time being. So, please bare with me.
Don't know if you would exactly call this art, but I liked the way the lines of light and dark formed on the shades. Until tomorrow, be well.
