What a terrible thing to happen in Paris. I'm horrified. It makes one feel so helpless to hear of such terrible acts against innocent people. It also feels a little weird to post about something so silly as my glasses and how I drew them up this afternoon, immortalizing them on a page. Yes, I'm supposed to do art about my life and I'm thrilled to have a terrific pair of glasses that help me see ever so much better. But it feels so trivial somehow. I'm sure everybody is feeling the same way though, I'm not alone, I'm sure.
So, I'm gonna leave it at the art and say I'm so sorry terrorism has landed within your borders again. I hope and pray for the recovery of all who were affected.
I'm a watercolor and mixed-media artist who blogs about her adventure in paint. Come visit me at JustAddWaterSilly.com. I also am a contributing editor for Featuring magazine, an international english language art magazine published quarterly. Previously I owned my own wedding cake business (for eight years) making designer wedding cakes decorated in handmade cold porcelain flowers. It was fun creating three dimensional real looking flowers as decorations but I really wanted to be a painter so when I moved I shut down the business. Now I paint, blog, write for Featuring and review good books for fun. It's a good life.
