Happy Belated Anniversary Blog! Better PaintingPhoto.

I was just reading Jeanne Grant's Anniversary Post and realized my blog is two years old as well! Mine is a few days older than Jeanne's. :) June 15, 2006, was the day and I had posted 609 posts on June 15, 2008. Pretty amazing as I had only managed ever to get about 20 entries in any diary or journal I had ever started. I suppose it is the connection with people that keeps me interested. I love hearing from friends and new internet browsing acquaintances. We live in such a small world now that we have so many wonderful communication devices.

Again you see why I ask Joanna to take the photos of my paintings. There is an amazing difference even when I fiddle with them in my old Adobe PhotoDeluxe. Thank you Joanna. You should slip over to Joanna's Photobox blog and check out the Periwinkle Blue.

Lovely, Jo!!! I don't understand how they look so different...amazing! This is really a beautiful one!!!

Joanna said...

Happy anniversary!

I can't believe those two photos look so different. I'll have my camera this weekend if you need any additional new photos.

Jo Castillo said...

Joan, thank you so much for your words. :)

Joanna, I told you that I am not a photographer. Heh, heh. Maybe I will get a painting done tomorrow!

Happy Anniversary Jo. I just looked at how many I had on my anniversary. Only 452. You blogged more than me.

Bag Blog said...

Wow, the difference in the photos is amazing. I really like the painting.

Congrats on your blog-o-versary.

Jo Castillo said...

Jeanne, I think more blogs on my part means I was not painting and you were drawing instead of posting. :) Good for you!

bag blog, thanks so much. Joanna is a great photographer.

Jo: Happy number two, certainly a milestone in blogging.

Jo Castillo said...

fishing guy, thanks for stopping by and the congrats. Amazing that I'm still going strong.

Does this mean your blog is now a toddler and we're going to hear a lot of the word, "NO!" this year?
Let the terrible twos commence!

Jo Castillo said...

Susan, you got me!! At least I have an excuse now. :)

Hope the workshop went well and you had a great time.
