Fine Art Friends Review

I've mentioned before that I belong to a group, Fine Art Friends. We share our trials and tribulations and encourage each other. We offer friendly criticism and help one another. We are scattered around but have the hope to meet face to face sometime.

Valerie Jones has put together a post about each one of us. She is in Oklahoma and a wonderful colored pencil artist and mother. I wish I could take a workshop with her. Maybe I will get there, it isn't too, too far to Oklahoma from Bastrop.

You can check out the fun and wonderful art work on her blog. Maybe you are lucky enough to live in Oklahoma and take a workshop and meet Valerie.

Here are the links to the posts about the rest of us.

Thank you Valerie for the nice words.

About Me

I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los NiƱos. (Link on sidebar) "I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns." -- Winston Churchill
