I recently up-graded my computer, and now I'm in the process of organizing 
my photo files.  It's been an ordeal, but I found some of my older paintings.
I look at them now, and see how traditional I was.
This one, is one of my first paintings..well one of the first that I deemed, worthy to hang.
The Old Dutch Masters, style.
I love pears. I'm always drawing and painting pears.
And this was from a few years ago, when I painted on furniture.
I did a few of the cowboys, on dressers'.  They seemed to sell pretty good.
Wish I still had the pictures of those, but they bit dust when the old computer
CRASHED!
Nothing worth hanging in a gallery, but I learned a lot while painting them.
Some of my artwork will never ever be seen...trust me!
Other pieces I work on I consider  as practice pieces.
I may deem some worthy to show you, or not.
But we shall see.
Let me get back to the photo files.
Ugh!  It's just time consuming, deciding what to keep or where to file.

Be well, and thanks for the well wishes, while I was out of sorts.

What a privilege to peek into your past! They are all so lovely!!

Sorry about your computer ~ it is a huge job, isn't it? But one word of advice ~ keep everything you can ~ even if you only burn to a disk or transfer to a memory stick. Someday you (and your children, and their children, etc) will be glad to have the history of your art ~ after all, it's all part of you.

And, oh yes, please share more with us too! :)

Lisa, it's so neat to see some of your other work. Yes, you were a traditional girl. I was, too, at one point, but now I love all the folksy/whimsical stuff. Thanks for sharing.
