  35. Shut up, you did not make those things in the '70s! You must have been an infant. I adore the pots!

    Everything looks great; what a huge improvement. I adore the silkscreen too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. NANCY! WAIT.....before I go on, I have to comment on YOUR HORSE SCULPTURE! You made that? I fell in love with it as I scrolled down! Now, for the makeover!

    What a change! I prefer light colors, so I have to say that I find the light colors more suitable to show off the wonderful textures in the wall paper and the different objets d'art in your powder room. STUNNING! Don't you just love to transform things?

    Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comment on my post; I am very happy and especially now that I have decided to spend my time working and trying to write. I had taken a year off last year from full-time teaching to pursue art, but that did not turn out and I'm glad I found out early what my real desires are, and that is to immerse myself in language. I teach French and I love it, and I study and try to write poetry and I am happy and well.

    May you enjoy every day of creative fun and BE WELL! Anita
