The End

Well the end of 29 faces, and the end of this blog has come.  Its time for
me to move on and do other things.  I have loved doing the blog, for the past
9 years.  But the end has come, I am going to keep the blog open
because sometimes you need a blog to do things.  So I will
still have a presence on Instagram   , and facebook, if you
want to still talk to me, or see my art.  So for now
its goodbye, thanks for all the great years.
and heres my email

Day 26 Lou Lou

sometimes she liked having a long neck, especially when
she went to concerts , she had a great view.
|Well its almost over, am I sad a little bit, but glad to go on
to other things.  29 days of making faces is hard.
Fall is here especially where I live, the wind is blowing the leaves, and
we already have had the heat and the fireplace on.  I have decided to
make some fall goals, usually its new years, but I am changing it up this year
has a whole blog post plus links of people who joined in, alas I was
a little late to the party.  So I decided to do my own.
I know you have heard me lament my weight before, how I am
going to lose it etc.  Well I have taken it down a little and decided on
small steps.  By Christmas I would like to be down 20 lbs.  Small
but doable.
I go swimming daily, but I could take it up a notch.  I have
gotten into a routine and only do one thing.  So I am going to
switch up the exercise.  One day water walk, one day, swim laps etc.
I am a big big reader.  I love to read, I read a lot online, I get the books
from the library online, and read at night. But I tend to overlook
the other person in the room, and get to involved in reading, and ignore
the hubster.  So I have decided to read a little during the day, and some
before bed.
I have been wanting to sell some of my art.  I have found a place to
make good prints, I have joined Instagram, I still post daily\
on this blog, but still not getting a lot of readers.   Fridays I have
instituted Tuts and Videos, etc in hopes of getting
more people interested in my art.  I have submitted my
are to magazines etc.  I was going to give it all up,.
clean the art room, and forget about it.  But I have
decided to try again for another year.  Its not about the money
for me, its about the art, so I have decided that I am
going to give my art to family and friends, whether they
want it or not (lol)
Okay that's enough for today more on goals on Sunday
talk to you then.

I have been down for the count for the last couple of days
I think I have the flu  I have not had the flu for years.  But
I feel all achy, and no energy, and other things you don't want
to hear about.  But I have some great news , my daughter
got engaged last Saturday in Disneyland, it was a
surprise.  I am so happy for them, I just think the finance (aka the boyfriend)
is wonderful.  They have been together for about 7 years, 5 of them living together.  So\
I guess they know each other pretty well.  So I don't know when the wedding is
I think its next year.  You will be the second to know once I find out.
Okay enough about me, heres why you really came some vids, slim
pickings, is no one using youtube anymore, come on people. we love
your videos

Here is a vid on how to paint people, I have a really hard time with that, but I am going to give
it a try

Another good video by someone new to me,

I am a constant reader, trash ,good books, etc.  I just read a new
book by JR Ward, called Burbon Kings, going to be a series, but
its a great book, I got it from the library.
