Lillian,

Thanks - I smiled when you said "famous."  That happens only when I really SELL some stuff.  I'm still mostly at the give away stage.

It's enjoyable - main thing!

Hi all,
'famous means when I sell some stuff'... really?  Yet, I wonder...
1)  isn't van Gogh famous?  my guess would be yes
2)  didn't he only sold only one painting in his life time?  apparently yes, the Red Vineyard at Arles (The Vigne Rouge)

Okay, artists need to put food on the table... I agree.

And to Josh,
How far are you from the North Pole?   I am 1500 miles (3200 km). which would require you an approximate 3.2 hours of air travel, considering an average speed of 500 miles/hr.

Saying this I would rather travel a little more then 3.2h, and go to Hawaii or Mexico to escape the snow...

Happy holiday to all and my best wishes for 2015!
Cheers, Annie

Val,

Thanks.  Gee, I was thinking yesterday - Val must be busy; we've had no messages from her for a few days.  Oh, wait, Lloyd was coming to see you, right?  Ah, that explains it.

Hope mum is doing well.

DENISE-  Yeah, too funny!  :2funny:


MARYANNE, What do you think about this:
You must know some of these folks riding regularly to town.  Since you're getting good at this, Someone may get a kick if you gave them a signed 'Back of your Head Drawing'.  On the other hand, if word got out, you may be swamped with requests for your bus ride art work!   ::)    :)

Thanks, Liz.  Interesting idea. 

Quite likely that no one who rides the bus even read the article.  Maybe my secret life is safe for now.
