First off, let me thank EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU who were kind enough to put up with my rant yesterday. I felt better almost immediately after seeing that I might not be the only one who'd get mad at this kind of situation. THANK YOU AND I'M ALL BETTER...(for now)!
And let me add, for those of you who've been so kind to check and edit my name on your blogs (and I do thank you!), that my rant did NOT mean to include mistypings on blogs-- because those are so easy to change--and I am also a terrible typist myself. It really just was about something that had been sent to print in multiples of several thousand, by someone who should have known better after almost 20 years.

So here is my latest offering for Karin Juricks' fine, fine, fine (and fun) artist challenge, Different Strokes from Different Folks.
I actually felt confident enough this time to go out of my comfort zone, and let me be the first to say: I can't believe I did this. Not that it's all that, because it's not; clearly, it's just a quick sketch with loose brush strokes... two things I was sure I was totally incapable of! I actually let a brushstroke show?!? And in muted colors, no less! and I pulled it in a couple hours! This is entirely unheard of in my studio (and I also started on a toned canvas-- quinacridone gold in this case-- thank you Leslie Saeta and Tom Pohlman for your inspiration)
I must have secretly been replaced with a much artier, more efficient alien.
