Do you "collect" something? books and magazines on art

What else do you do when you are working on something art related? I listen to cds (mostly mysteries), listen to Court Tv, (I was supposed to be an attorney, but never finished college so all that interests me) watch HGTV out of the corner of my eye

Is your art area messy or kinda neat? Messy

Who or what has influenced your artwork the most up to this point? Fred Ottnes, Ann Baldwin

Are you a self-taught artist? Yes

Tell me about the day you realized you were a "real" artist? When I started sending in my work and getting published and then selling my work

What colors speak to you? red, magenta, purples and then all shades of browns and sepia

Anything you want to ask me or anything else you want to add? No, just that I appreciate your hard work and that you give so freely of your talents and time. I love the yahoogroups and the sharing and caring that they give us. I spend a lot of time in my art room and I guess sometimes I feel that there are lots of others doing the same thing and we can "get together" through participation in the groups. Love that.
