I*Am*an*Artist!

... and totally love that!!

My true bliss is to share my colors...

... but sometimes I self- impose boundaries, I let my fears or tiredness prevail. What I've learnt from generous mentors is don't let the fear of having your work stolen prevent you from showing it.

After all, the most perfect way I have to tell who I am, is showing you what I make.

  6. Yes. You ARE an artist! :) I love your drawings. I love to draw too! I just get lost in it. And pansies? One of my favorite flower...well, that and the peonies! LOVE the peonies too. They remind me of my step-mother. She was as sweet as the flower. Her yard was full of them. I really enjoy your blog, Monica. Thank you for sharing part of yourself with us.

  15. Monica,

    I ADORE the pansies!!!!!! Are you selling these? Are they cards? LOVE THEM! Hope you are having a wonderful spring. Are you settling in? I love the flowers in your last post too. How is Kim? Elle was sick last week but, seems on the mend this week. ???? We really aren't sure what was wrong but, after antibiotics... it looks like all is well now. HUGS!

  22. Monica,
    Your artwork is beautiful! I use to paint and then put the paintings in a box! Slowly I started hanging them in my home and then got up the nerve to display them at a Barnes and Noble Cafe a few times. Keep sharing!
