JUST SOME THOUGHTS . . .
Now, those of you who know me know I'm not a very good drawer - but I do know that if I put my photo upside down, I'm able to draw it! Amazing to me, for sure. (I also do well with contour drawings, don't know what that actually says about me!)

Another thing that I found out last night - and it made me laugh out loud - was that Larry Flynt of "Hustler Magazine" fame is going to ask the government for a $5 Billion bailout for the porn industry! Stay with me here . . . .
Don't you think that we artists should band together as the Art Industry and ask for our bailout? Who among us couldn't use a little cold, hard, cash? Don't we all create art that is just as "important" as a porn DVD?
Going further, how about the construction industry (of which my husband and son are a part), beauticians (my daughter), arbortists, nurses, plumbers, FOR SURE FARMERS!, cattle ranchers - and the list goes on - you get the idea!
So I say - go for it, Larry! Lead the way for all of us to get our (un)fair share from the government! Let's see, how much is my portion of $5 Billion divided by millions of artists???? I'll be checking my mailbox carefully to find out!!!
