Words of late artist Frank Howell...I totally relate!

"There are few days off and no retirement from this entanglement of knowledge, passion and vision that will be molded and converted into creative expression. There are no guarantees of acceptance, understanding or reward, but...the noise inside the mind never ceases. I will paint today, tonight and for as many tomorrows as I am given..."

A Christmas Gift to Myself

I bought myself a Christmas gift yesterday.  I've always liked them, but never really thought about having one.  I don't play the piano, so why would I need or want a piano stool? Because they're just neat...and those glass ball feet are so cool.  I'm glad I bought it.  I think it will be great at my easel.

I'm sure the grandchildren are going to LOVE the fact that it spins...

I need to decide if I want to paint it or not...I think I'll leave it as is for a bit until I'm sure.


Aren't the feet pretty?

I can't wait to sit on it and paint at the easel...

I hope you are enjoying your holiday season..I'm going to try not to overdo the Christmas posts.  Maybe just one or two more!
