me - a blog??



This is how it started, in a Digital Imaging class at Ventura College. Assignment: create an original piece in Photoshop, starting with a blank page, using only a mouse and any Photoshop tools you want.

So, since I was also taking a Life Drawing class and loved drawing naked people, I started mousing a naked form. But, wait. I took the art classes to improve my art quilting. I changed the solid lines to dotted ones, and, voila! Stitches. Then, to be artsy, I copied the stitches 2 more times (of course I had been taught that art likes odd numbers).





The piece made it into art shows, friends wanted copies, one wanted to buy it.

So then I made a wall hanging out of it. Okay, two wall hangings....






...more to come...

You rock! Your "drawings" are amazing. I love your story, especially the part about being a recovering attorney.
