New blog site for me!

This is my first blog here on Blogger.  So I hope you will excuse any obvious blunders.
I have been on the Multiply site which will be closing in December.  I hate when sites do that, don't you?  You just get use to their ways of doing things like uploading pictures, changing backgrounds and so many more and then whoosh they dump their site.

It will take me a while to learn this site and any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

A little about me.  I am living alone in Michigan and have four grown children and six grandchildren.  I keep busy by doing volunteer work for the public schools in the mornings and working on my art and writing later in the day. 

This is one of my current projects.  It is a seaside picture that I am attempting to recreate from a phote that I found on the internet.  The phote isn't a really good one and I am struggling to get the background to look like the photo.  Perhaps when I have it finished I will repost.

Well I hope this blog takes....give me your thoughts and feel free to join my circle.


  1. I left a comment the other day on this post but I don't see it:-( You are so talented and I love this! Where do you plan on hanging it?

  2. Thanks for the comment...I don't know where your other one went. I plan on donating this painting to our community room where I live...the one that they have handing is terribly faded and old looking.

    I think I discovered how to change the background yesterday...I feel so slow learning how to do things here.

  3. I'm so glad you are here, Ruth! Love your background and that's a great photo! I'm very excited about your art! Can't wait to see the finished work!

  4. Ruth that is so nice of you to donate this painting your community room! Looking forward to seeing a picture of it when you have it completed!
