This IS Friday, isn’t it?
I’m so caught up in my story, “Garrett”, book 2 of the Texas McKettricks, I have to stop and think about what day it is.
Sadie is off to her class today, and Bernice and the kits and I will be hanging out downstairs, in the office.
I’m having a lot of fun in my studio, too–I slip in there on breaks and slap some paint onto something–:) It always gives me a thrill. I’ve enrolled in Suzi Blu’s Les Petit Academy online, and I’m learning to draw and shade faces. Not the super-realistic kind, but the artsy ones. Suzi is quite a character, an excellent teacher, a very good artist. She has a knack for making learning fun and includes PDF files that are really helpful. The other big discovery is www.ArtworkshopsTV.com. I love this one! You can rent how-to art videos for as long as a month and watch them right on your computer. An idea whose time has come.
Of course we’re only in the pioneering stages of online studies–all the more exciting to think of what the future holds.
Have you seen “A Creed Country Christmas” in the stores yet? It has a lovely cover, and the story is very close to my heart. Lincoln Creed, the hero, is the stand-up, straight-shooting cowboy who founded the Creed ranch, back in the early 1900s. His lady is Julianna Mitchell, a woman of heart and compassion and unbelievable strength. My favorite characters are the children–and having it all happen at Christmas was just magical.
Which reminds me. Christmas is coming.
