Dreams of Greatness

I am reading a book about the great American artist John Singer Sargeant, his paintings make me think that I good be a great painter too. I don't know why. If I could only dedicate myself to art I wonder if I could go places with it, but atlas I am a wife, mother, and other things before I am an artist. I have been asked to submit some of my work for a greeting card company. So maybe one day I will be great. It's good to have big dreams!

I just finished reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, finally a book that really should be on the best seller list. It was a little racey for me in some area but it had a good story line. I don't know how some books are chosen for the best seller list, because The Emperor's Children made the list and it was horrible, to me it was just paragraph's with a lot of unknown words. Steig Larsson is continuing the story with tThe Girl Who Played with Fire I think I'll read that. I like series.

My First Commisioned Work

I have been asked to paint a picture of a brother and sister for a Father's Day gift. It is still a work in progress. I hope to be finished soon.
