Since joining the Every Day Matters group, I've been striving for a drawing or painting a day...but I get busy on other things and my art kind of gets "left behind". So last night as I was shutting down my computer, there was a blank piece of paper and a tangelo sitting there...so I grabbed a pen that was laying there, too...and quickly sketched the piece of fruit before my husband reached for it to eat it. I'm always hesitant to do any drawing right before I head to bed...because sometimes it gets me hyped up and then I have trouble falling asleep. Once I get started on a drawing, it's difficult for me to stop. I'm the same about playing music on my dulcimer. Once I pick it up and start playing, it's hard to put it down.
I am an artist who enjoys drawing; painting; creating silver, enameled and beaded jewelry; photography; and digital art. I also enjoy playing a dulcimer.
In 2007, I discovered the mountain dulcimer and I've spent the last couple of years learning to play this instrument.
