What is a 'blog' anyway? IDK<---that means I don't know. Isn't it when you just write in your diary every day but online? IDK. Isn't this what we cyber-folk have been doing since Al Gore invented the internet?

Seeing I'm so involved with making art, I tend to write about the art process. Like today. I saw a photo on my Timeline that caught my eye. I asked permission to use it as a model to paint from.
I paint with pixels but the process is exactly the same as using traditional art supplies.

I stare at a blank 'piece of paper'. My stylus becomes a pencil, a No. 2 pencil. I either paint what I'm thinking or I stare at a photo. Then I start drawing. After that I embellish the sketch and my stylus becomes paints and paint brushes, flesh it out the sketch so to speak. Keep painting and painting over that sketch until 'it's done'. Then I sign it.

Martha got me to open up about my art process. Yesterday she suggested I do a 'blog'. I still don't know what a blog is!
