Odalisque means a female slave. It was a new term to me. As I think of this term, I think that so often we become a slave to our own way of thinking. Just a thought. My 57th birthday was yesterday, so sorry I was not posting. Today is my last day off. Tomorrow I will go back to work and my 140 or so art students. It has been a good, very low key time off. I needed it. My 3 cows are almost done. Ethics are an important part of finding personal character and success.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
