The days fly by for me....especially now since the hubby is retired!

I am finding more time for art too!! Kinda surprised at that .

Been working on a group of artomat blocks. gargoyles again. will post some soon. We artists are having an exchange in Washington, DC this month. It is fun to be with like minded folk.

At work today my "boss" was tickled with a little joke he heard...

Yeah, Satan called.......said he wants his weather back!

What is happening with ya'll?

Hi folks! Interesting boat Tyree...why am I thinking of Tom Hanks. I think boats are really hard to do...like yours a lot.

Wonderful gargoyles Robin....I love the colors and design. Do you print all copies for Artomat by hand. Whew!

I have had joint pain in my knees...so it has been hard to get up and down...a little better now so I can do some art at last. :cool:
