Life IS Art


My sis-in-law told the editor of Impromptu magazine about all the daily sketching I've been doing. The editor thought it would make a good story and she assigned a writer to do a story about it. It tells about how I started making drawing a regular part of my life after reading Danny's website and book, and how it has enriched the quality of my life. To tell you the truth, I wasn't sure there was enough there to make a story...but it turned out pretty well. This magazine is circulated to homes in the Kankakee/Joliet area. I don't know how long this will be up---if the Impromptu Magazine gives me permission, I will let it stay.

I'm glad you commented on my blog! Yeah, I love Lake MIchigan. I'm going back at the end of June for my high school reunion. I'm looking forward to sunsets on the beach and the cooler than Tucson weather!!

This is very cool. (For a minute I wondered whether the photo of the woman on the right was you, but then I clicked and got closer and saw that it was an ad. Possibly for waxing? Hee hee.) Anyway, this is very exciting.
