Dabbling and Doodling : ArtNews
I don't know about you but I have never done bungee jumping.
Not that an average , avoirdupois enabled, loud-voiced , approaching-60, blogger, routinely bungee-jumps (think of the bridge undergoing trauma), but that's how I feel when I am attempting something totally new, without any training, per se, and an entire family standing behind, mouths agape, hands covering their mouth, some even shaking their heads......you get the idea.
Art wasn't something the Lord remembered when he was distributing genes, in my case.
But a diet of persistent trying, fooling around with colors in the Windows Paint program, encouragement from some of my blogger friends, and an ability to have an opinion on everything, has allowed me to "methylate" the gene; that is, temporarily change settings in my genes blaming it on the environment. That's Epigenetics for you.
And so I am convinced that I need to have an ArtNews blog. In addition to this one.
Have a look at Reghotya
And in keeping with the latest mode of reacting and commenting, shoes, sandals, tomatoes and comments will be gratefully dodged........
