I'm sitting here in front of my computer, trying to come up with my first blog on FAA. Being new to blogging, I'm not quite sure how to go about it. And having so much on my mind, I'm overwhelmed with ideas.

I could just talk about myself.....hum, let's see.. I'm 50 years young. I have four adult children and four grand-children. I was born in Sacramento California and raised in Lake Tahoe...( well not really IN the lake, more like next to it). I also raised my kids there. My parents owned a Gallery on the North Shore for 37 years. This you may already know because I talk about it in my profile page.....

Or I could talk about my art.....My first love is oils. I started painting in oils at the age of 16. I like very thick paint and lots of texture. A lot of the paintings I create are done with a palette knife. I also like to play with acrylics. I get great textures using sand mixed with gesso or molding paste. I love experimenting.....I also teach beginning oil and acrylic painting to children and adults....

Or how to frame art.....I have a lot of years in the framing department....13 years as a framer in 4 different frame shops. So if anyone needs advice or help, just ask.

OK, this was my first attempt at blogging. How did I do?
