My interests vary from time to time but I remain very much a beginner in the art world, whether it's quilting, drawing, sketching, digital graphics art, painting, photography, zentangling, hand made cards or any other art form. But I keep trying... Here's my bag of information on Where to Go, What to Do and How to Do It. Hence the title: My Art Bag.

The Three Muses Challenge - Books




This week's theme at The Three Muses is Books.

I've enjoyed reading all my life and remember how exciting it was to receive a new book.  I still have a couple from my childhood.  When I didn't have a book to read I'd pull down volumes from The Book of Knowledge or the Encyclopedia that were in the bookshelf next to the fireplace, and also a large book of short stories by Rudyard Kipling (which I didn't actually like very much, but they were there.)  And the Dictionary if there wasn't anything else to read.  Snuggle up on the couch with the sun streaming in the windows and be taken away...

They do fill you up and expand your life.

See you next time...

This, my friend, is absolutely beautiful .... soft and painterly and beautiful and deserves to illustrate a children's book.

I tried to get into this activity, but couldn't carve out enough contiguous time to accomplish anything. Your pieces are quite enviable! Very lovely!

Virtual hugs,
