A Year Ago in March

A year ago, I refound my passion for art and ventured into creating again after roughly 25 years! A friend of mine Susan Kimball told me about Red Bubble.( Thank you again Susan) I had just produced my first ever pastel work called Bouquet and decided to boldly post it here at Red Bubble. The first thing that happened was someone added me to their watchlist and I did not even know what that was! LOL, though I was flattered! Next I earned about joining groups and joined the Contemporary Pastel Painters group and submitted Bouquet. It was not long after that it got featured and that was it!! I was hooked!! …
The ride here at RB this last year has been absolutely amazing!! I have met so many encouraging artists who I consider friends! I have been so inspired by all of you and your tremendous artwork and photography. Thank you so very much!!! I can’t tell you how grateful I am! I have produced 35 of the current works in my Bubble (and numerous others that didn’t make the cut.lol) and the RB community has been so much a part of the enthusiasm that has propelled me to keep creating! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!! to those on my watchlist, the hosts who have run the groups and featured my work or even me as an artist!, those of you who have taken the time to comment on my work and encourage me and the incredible Red Bubble team!!!!! Here is a toast and a cheers to all of you!!!
