Inspiration often comes unexpectedly. While reading one of our favorite blogs, Bailey Be Good this morning, mom was once again reminded of something that she has missed doing. Bailey's mom is an artist and she does beautiful portraits of the doggies that she knows. Now my mom is an artist too, and she's very fortunate to have a full time job as a technical illustrator and writer. But what she draws is just that, very technical. She's always considered herself an artist, and even majored in fine arts in college. Art jobs were scarce then and even more rare now. Mom loves being able to do what she loves, and considers herself very fortunate. All her drawings are done on the computer and she loves that part too. But every now and then she's reminded of the joy that drawing and painting by hand brings to her. Joan Brienza Nardozzi. Joan is another great inspiration fur mom. There are so many terrific anipal artists including BZTAT , 47 from Rocco's House, and Robin (who blogs fur Chesire)! So thank you to all the artists that we've met on line and in person that have inspired mom to get off her duff and start drawing again!
